(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) NEW YORK, May 25 (KUNA) -- Coordination with countries hosting peace processes is important to proliferate notions of peace and security around the globe, said a Kuwaiti diplomat Friday.
Delivering Kuwait's speech to the UNSC Arria-Formula Meetings on peace, first secretary of the Kuwaiti UN mission in New York Fawaz Bourseli said that reforming the security sector and building its capabilities in addition to supporting the actions carried out by the UNSC and the General Secretariat all contribute to the peace internationally.
The Kuwaiti diplomat lauded the Cairo Roadmap for Enhancing Peacekeeping Performance, which developed the concept of peacekeeping cooperation to include host countries.
Bourseli said that usually peacekeeping forces deploy after the end of conflicts and wars as part of a political process to promote peace and security.
He added that peacekeeping could be used as a tool to prevent conflicts from ever occurring in the first place by managing and eradicating the source of disputes among countries and parties.
Including countries hosting peace processes will address priorities and help in realizing peace in a more orderly fashion, indicated the diplomat.
He affirmed that coordination and cooperation between UN peacekeeping forces and host countries would help to effectively promote peace on a wider scale.
Bourseli mentioned the processes in Darfur and Haiti as an example of effective cooperation for peace. (end)
