New York, Sept 26, ‘UN and international organizations necessary for peace building and conflict resolution’ -Special Representative Sarachchandra Bhandary New York, Sept 26 (RSS): Minster for Foreign Affairs Pradeep Kumar Gyawali has stressed the necessity of the United Nations along with international, regional and sub-regional organizations for global peace building and conflict resolution.

In a ministerial level dinner on ‘A High-Level Dialogue on Peace Operations: Enhancing Partnership between the UN and International, Regional and Sub-regional Organizations’, Minster Gyawali termed the meeting very contextual with multilateralism facing series of attacks from multiple fronts.

Noting that the magnitude of conflict has widened in the contemporary world over the time, he said it has aggravated the challenge. Lone efforts from an institution therefore would not be adequate to overcome the challenge”. In order to address these challenges, the drafters of the UN Charter had envisioned the partnership and collaboration among the international, regional and sub-regional organizations, he added.

He also noted that the UN was given more than needed importance for resolving conflict while asserting, “Regional and sub-regional organizations can play crucial role in resolving and preventing conflicts”. He however stressed the need to strengthen capacity of the international and regional organizations in the areas of post-conflict diplomacy, mediation, reconstruction and post-conflict development.
