Statement by Ambassador Victor Moraru on behalf of the member states of the Organization for Democracy and Economic Development – GUAM

On 12th of June, 2018the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted a Resolution initiated by Georgia on the „Status of Internally Displaced Persons and Refugees from Abkhazia, Georgia and the Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia, Georgia”.

Speaking on behalf of the Organization for Democracy and Economic Cooperation, H.E. Mr. Victor Moraru, Permanent Representative of the Republic of Moldova said millions of people in the GUAM area had been forced to leave their homes as a result of armed conflicts, leading to a range of humanitarian challenges. Urging the Assembly to prioritize their needs and to ensure their safe and dignified return home, he expressed support for the draft resolution introduced by Georgia, pointing out that, 10 years since the Assembly had first adopted it, no progress had been achieved.

Expressing regret that the conditions for their safe and dignified return had still not been achieved, and that hundreds of thousands of people continued to be deprived of their rights, he voiced support for the Geneva International Discussions process and said the UNGA resolution would serve as another important tool to encourage participants to redouble their efforts to address issues under their mandate. He expressed concern about the human rights situation in the Georgian regions of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia and reiterated the support of the “GUAM” States for Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within internationally recognized borders.
