Peacebuilding must respect sovereignty: ChinaNovember 1st, 2011 - 1:36 pm ICT by IANS
United Nations, Nov 1 (IANS) Post-conflict peacebuilding should be carried out on the basis of full respect to the sovereignty and will of the country concerned, a Chinese diplomat said here Monday.
“Countries in conflict bear the primary responsibility of peacebuilding in their own country,” said Wang Min, China’s deputy permanent representative to the UN, at an open debate of the Security Council.
“The international community should respect the will of the country concerned in peacebuilding efforts, help them to strengthen national capacity building and increase their level of governance,” Xinhua quoted Wang as saying.
“In doing so, a coordinated, integrated and target working method should be applied while taking into consideration of the different domestic conditions.”
Wang noted that peacebuilding should have clear priorities.
The strategies of peacebuilding and comprehensive development should focus on stabilising security, promoting political reconciliation, strengthening democracy and so on, he said.
The Chinese diplomat also pointed out that resources should be most effectively used in peacebuilding efforts and he urged the UN agencies and regional organisations to play their “important roles”.
China has been increasingly uncomfortable with US moves to oust regimes unfriendly to Washington.
