I thank you for this opportunity to discuss the report on Peacebuilding and Sustaining Peace.
Peace is the most important task we have at the United Nations.
This Commission is critical to advancing this essential work, and I am encouraged by your programme for 2022.
The problem is our task grows larger by the day.
As detailed in my report, we are facing the highest number of violent conflicts since 1945.
From Yemen to Syria, Myanmar and Sudan.
From Haiti to the Sahel and on and on.
