I thank the UN, the UK government, and its cohosts for the communique that they have put forward today, reaffirming peacekeeping as an indispensable part of the response to threats, to international peace and security. It includes the pledges to double within four years the number of women in the UN military and policing operations, to integrate the needs and participation of women in all stages of the planning process.
In my view, there is a dividing line between nations that are prepared to commit to this moment, to understand all that is necessary and all that we are capable of achieving together and those who are not. So I urge all countries here that have not endorsed the communique, please do so.
