KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) – Malaysia shared the United Nations Security Council’s deepening concern over the marked increase in terrorist attacks around the world.
Malaysia’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Datuk Hussein Haniff, said Malaysia remain deeply concerned over the escalation of armed conflicts and violence in several situations around the world.
“In this context, we are disappointed that the council was unable to reach consensus on addressing the deteriorating situation in Yemen. At the same time, the deteriorating humanitarian situation in several conflict areas, including Palestine, Syria and Ukraine, continues to remain high on the council’s agenda.
“It is a matter of concern that the council remains sharply divided on these situations,” he said at the Security Council briefing on “Implementation of the Note by the President of the Security Council” in New York on Thursday. The text of his speech was faxed to Bernama today.
The session was presided by Chile’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Cristian Barros Melet, who is the President of the UN Security Council for this month.
