No place for children in conflict, UN chief tells Security Council

UN Secretary General, Antonio Gutteres

The disregard for children’s rights amid war and upheaval “is shocking and heartbreaking”, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said on Monday during a high-level open debate in the Security Council, held virtually. 

Mr. Guterres urged warring parties to prioritize the prevention of violations against boys and girls, and called on countries to support their protection at all times. 

The Secretary-General presented his latest report on Children and Armed Conflict, which was published last week.
