 The Security Council has been unable to unite on Syria, as well as on Ukraine - Ban Ki-moon

The United Nations was created after the Second World War to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war. We have to acknowledge that that vision by our founding fathers of the United Nations has not been fully realized. Genocide recurred. Armed conflicts still continue in many parts of the world.

Censor.NET reports citing UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's remarks at a symposium on the seventieth anniversary of the United Nations, held at the United Nations University in Tokyo.

"The security landscape is becoming much more complex. Multiple actors are on the battlefield, and many others operate behind the scenes," UN Secretary-General said.

Ban Ki-moon also stressed: "Syria is at risk of total collapse. That would have grave consequences for the region. The terrifying rise of Da'esh, or ISIL [the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant/Sham], and its affiliates is also claiming victims in Iraq, Libya, Nigeria and beyond."

According to the UN Secretary-General, The Security Council has been unable to unite on Syria, as well as on Ukraine. To restore peace and stability in Ukraine, maintaining the ceasefire is critical. Even though the Minsk II ceasefire agreement seems to be largely holding, it is a very fragile agreement. All the actors must adhere sincerely to the implementation of the Minsk II ceasefire agreement.
