(OSRSG-CAAC) – The Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, Leila Zerrougui, today welcomed the adoption of the United Nations Security Council’s Resolution 2225, following the 15-member Council’s unanimous approval of the draft, which the Permanent Mission of Malaysia to the United Nations sponsored, along with 55 co-sponsors. The measure adds “abduction” to the “trigger” violations that, if committed against children by a Government armed force or non-State armed group, would lead to that party’s inclusion in the annexes of the Secretary-General’s Annual Report on Children and Armed Conflict. The annexes contain a list of parties that are found to have committed one or more of the now-five trigger violations. The Security Council has identified a total of six grave violations. The annexes supplement the body of the annual report, which details information gathered by experts in the field on the grave violations against children in conflict situations around the world.
