Ladies and gentlemen,
I thank you for convening this open debate of the Security Council on Children and Armed Conflict. Chairperson, your presence here today testifies to the commitment of the Council to this issue and the crucial leadership of Mexico as new chair of the SCWG following the exemplary leadership of France.
You have before you the 8th report of the Secretary General on children and armed conflict.
For a full decade, the UN Security Council has addressed the severe abuses that children experience in armed conflict. Its response has included a series of six resolutions (1261, 1314, 1379, 1460, 1539, and 1612), the creation of a specialized working group, and the initiation of a monitoring and reporting mechanism on violations against children in armed conflict. The working group has now been functioning for 3 years, issuing 20 sets of conclusions on 11 country situations. The monitoring and reporting mechanism is now active in 13 countries.
