Ladies and Gentlemen,
UNIFIL today marked the International Day of Peace amidst a ceremony at its headquarters in Naqoura, south Lebanon, with its head and Force Commander Major General Stefano Del Col joining the global call for climate action for peace.
In his address to the gathering of dignitaries that included Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) representatives, local and religious leaders, and fellow UNIFIL peacekeepers, Major General Del Col said peace can only be achieved through “immediate and concrete” actions against climate change.
(NCLW, United Nations) - The Government of Lebanon has today endorsed, the country’s first National Action Plan (NAP) on UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, offering a comprehensive national framework for the long term stability and security of Lebanon and a building block for the attainment of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. The plan provides a set of tools and resources to drive forward the systematic engagement of women in peace and security deliberations in the country, while enhancing their protection and leadership.

**I. Introduction **
I was very glad that for the second time I was able to complement with some updates the report of the Secretary-General on Lebanon. As you are aware, there are two briefings, one very much focused on UNIFIL and that was delivered by Under-Secretary-General (Jean-Pierre) Lacroix and I would refrain from raising issues related to UNIFIL.
