Security Council Open Debate on Women, Peace and Security, April 2010

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

The Security Council held an Open Briefing on Women, Peace and Security on April 27, 2010 during which they considered a report on women, peace and security indicators (as requested in SCR 1889, OP17), and were briefed by Margot Wallström, the Secretary-General's Special Representative on Sexual Violence. Several Security Council Member States noted their strong support for the indicators as they stand, stating their belief in the comprehensiveness of the set before them, and their desire to endorse said indicators in October.

Japan read out a Presidential Statement (S/PRST/2010/8) in which the Council took note of the indicators contained in the Secretary-General's report, but requested further consultation be undertaken.
