HRC25: High-Level Dialogue on Sexual Violence in DRC
Thank you Mr. President.
I make this statement on behalf of the Sexual Rights Initiative.
We welcome Security Council Resolution 2122, which invites the Secretary General to commission a global study on the implementation of Resolution 1325. We also welcome HRC Resolution 24/27, highlighting the persistence of a very high level of cases of sexual violence, used as a weapon of war in conflict, and the recommendations contained therein.
