Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict: Press Conference in Kathmandu (5 Dec 2008)
PDF File Size: 109 KB | Download   
It is my pleasure to introduce to you Radhika Coomaraswamy, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict. It’s a post that Secretary-General Kofi Annan appointed her to in April 2006 and Secretary-general Ban Ki-Moon re-appointed her to in 2007. She is an internationally known human rights advocate. In her own country she was chairperson of the Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission, and internationally, before her present appointment, she was Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women. Her office, the office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict, was established by the General Assembly in 1997, with the support of all member states including Nepal, to foster international cooperation to ensure respect of rights for children during and after armed conflict. And, of course, the purpose of her visit to Nepal has been to promote the rights of children in the context of Nepal’s peace process. These are issues of great concern to the United Nations as a whole, especially to UNICEF, represented here by Gillian Mellsop, the Representative in Nepal of UNICEF, and of course to UNMIN, and Ms. Coomaraswamy has been accompanied at her meetings by UNICEF and UNMIN. A central issue of course, has been the discharge from Maoist army cantonments of those assessed as minors in May 2006 by UNMIN’s verification, an issue of very longstanding concern to UNMIN, UNICEF and the UN as a whole. So it’s my pleasure now to ask Radhika to address you.
