Equatorial Guinea Calls for Dialogue to End War in Syria

The Ambassador and Permanent Representative of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea to the United Nations (UN), Anatolio Ndong Mba, called for serious dialogue in order to end the war in Syria at the UN Security Council.

The Ambassador highlighted the 2013 UN resolution that outlined the destruction of all chemical weapons reserves.

Equatorial Guinea, as a member of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, has not hesitated to point out that the end of chemical weapons use in Syria depends on an inclusive political agreement through dialogue. Equatorial Guinea also highlighted that the conflict will continue unless there are direct consequences through international consensus.

The Ambassador’s comments came during a special UN Security Council session on the ongoing war in Syria, as well as the recent alleged use of chemical weapons.

Equatorial Guinea is active at the UN and, as non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, has called for a peaceful resolution to the Yemen conflict, mechanisms for peace in the Middle East, and protection of vital infrastructures against terrorist attacks.

Equatorial Guinea is committed to peaceful and sustainable development in the world.
