Secretary-General's remarks to the Security Council – on Conflict and Food Security [bilingual as delivered; scroll down for all-English]

Mr. President, Excellencies,
When war is waged, people go hungry. 
Some sixty percent of the world’s undernourished people live in areas affected by conflict.
No country is immune. In April, the World Food Programme and its partners distributed food and cash to more than 3 million Ukrainians. Until March, their country was feeding the world with abundant supplies of food.
I thank the United States Government for focusing on this crucial issue during its Presidency of the Council.
