Challenges to Peace and Security.


Recommended Posts

Well, there is already topic about Peace and Security, but this one is about "challenges and obstacles to Peace and Security"

Of course we know that nations will never achieve true Peace and Security, but nonetheless let's discuss the challenges here. 

 

First one: Tensions continue to escalate between Russia and Ukraine

From UN

Fragility and conflict are among the greatest obstacles to implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the conflict landscape was deteriorating.

Conflicts have become more complex, fueled by greater regionalization, the proliferation of non-State armed groups, and their linkages with criminal and even terrorist interests. 

They last longer and become more difficult to resolve.

According to the World Bank Fragility and Conflict Report, one of every five people in the Middle East and North Africa lives in close proximity to a major conflict. As a consequence, humanitarian needs have multiplied, reaching the highest levels since the Second World War.

The number of people at risk of starvation has doubled.

We know that prevention and peacebuilding save lives and are cost-effective, especially when strategies come together across the peace, development and humanitarian nexus in support of national priorities. But they also require national leadership, political commitment and financial support.

Yet, the international community continues to underinvest in these areas. That is why I have repeatedly called for increased financing for prevention and peacebuilding.

The editor of the Global Times – China’s propaganda mouthpiece - has delivered a chilling warning of a “heavy attack” on Australian troops should they come to the aid of Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion.

Defence Minister Peter Dutton said over the weekend it was “inconceivable” that Australia would not support a US-led action in Taiwan, but the editor of the Global Times issued a harrowing statement in response.

Hu Xijin said Australian troops would be met with a “nightmare” should they enter the Taiwan Strait.

“If Australian troops come to the Taiwan Straits to fight the PLA, that will definitely be a nightmare for them,” he said in one tweet.

“If Australian troops come to fight in the Taiwan Straits, it is unimaginable that China won’t carry out a heavy attack on them and the Australian military facilities that support them,” Mr Hu said in another.

“So Australia better be prepared to sacrifice for Taiwan island and the US.”

Iran plays hardball at Vienna meeting. (I don't think we can have PS proclamation without "solving" Iran problem)

VIENNA: Iran and world powers resumed talks on Monday after a five-month hiatus to try to salvage their 2015 nuclear deal, but with Tehran sticking to its tough stance and Western powers warning that it will not work, hopes of a breakthrough appeared slim.

Diplomats say time is running out to resurrect the pact, which then-US President Donald Trump abandoned in 2018, angering Iran and dismaying the other powers involved — Britain, China, France, Germany, and Russia.

Six rounds of indirect talks were held between April and June.

The new round formally began with a meeting of the remaining parties to the deal, without the US, shortly after 2 p.m. GMT.

Enrique Mora, the EU official chairing the talks, said Tehran stuck to its demand that all sanctions be lifted.

But he added that he was positive after the first discussions in Vienna with the new Iranian negotiators, who, Mora said, had shown a desire to engage seriously.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, in a video address delivered to nations negotiating in Vienna, warned that he saw Iran trying to “end sanctions in exchange for almost nothing.”

In the video that he later posted to Twitter, Bennett said: “Iran deserves no rewards, no bargain deals and no sanctions relief in return for their brutality.”

He added: “I call upon our allies around the world: Do not give in to Iran’s nuclear blackmail.”

British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss called the meeting “the last opportunity for the Iranians to come to the table” after a meeting with Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid.

“We want those talks to work,” Truss said. “But if they don’t work, all options are on the table.” https://www.arabnews.com/node/1977691/middle-east
