Until all women have equality and are treated without discrimination, our communities will never reach their full potential. In solidarity with Swiss women today.

It is a truly grim reality when communities are robbed of their cultural heritage, as we've seen in recent battlefields from the Buddhas of Bamiyan to the religious sites in Palmyra and Mosul. Making a call today in for greater protections of cultural property in war.

The trauma that families of missing persons suffer is one of the deepest wounds of war. The pain infects whole communities, lasting decades. We welcome the Security Council’s resolution adopted today for stronger action on this critical humanitarian issue.

Water and sanitation is still a challenge in City, two years after the conflict. With the local community getting behind this project, clean water is now flowing for both local residents and those displaced by the crisis.

Many of the volunteers from the local team were affected by the Marawi conflict, but despite their own difficulties they dedicated themselves to helping others. Thank you for the warm welcome today - I am incredibly impressed by your work during this crisis.

Two years ago, Marawi in the was a battleground, with heavy fighting displacing more than 100,000 local residents. Today I’ve been meeting some of the families who are still displaced, and longing to return home.

I saw recently in Syria’s Al Hol camp how thousands of people were ill, injured, traumatized. This new field hospital should help people receive the medical care they urgently need.

Good to see UN Secretary General again in New York. We continued our discussions on today’s pressing humanitarian challenges, as well as concerns for tomorrow’s battlefields, like autonomous weapons.

My message at to States: While we understand political consensus is difficult, we ask you to be clearer in your support for the respect of IHL. The simple truth is: no one is above the law and no civilian can be excluded from protection.

The political and military decisions made in the can impact human conditions on battlefields: If a city is bombed to rubble, or if hospitals are spared If kids are sent to school, or are recruited into armed forces If families ever hear from their loved ones again.
