In keeping with our commitments, we will focus our mandate from the Security Council on the protection of the most vulnerable in armed conflict. The protection of civilians, especially children, dignity and respect for women, the safety of schools and hospitals, the humanitarian corridors are, in our view, absolute and essential priorities.
The tragedies before our eyes in Syria, Libya and Yemen remind us of the extent of the road that remains to be traveled.
The 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals point the way for a better world. Everything is there: eradication of poverty, access to health and education, gender equality, fight against climate change.
