MADRID, May 7. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Presidency of the United Nations Security Council has expressed its “deep concern for the maintenance of peace and security in Ukraine” and has recalled that, under the UN Charter, all member states must “settle their disputes international by peaceful means”.
In a statement, the United States, which holds the ‘pro tempore’ presidency of the organization, has highlighted through the US embassy to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the organization’s “firm support” for the efforts of the secretary general, António Guterres, in search of a peaceful solution.
For his part, Guterres said in a statement that the Security Council “has spoken with one voice for peace in Ukraine.” “As I have often said, the world must unite to silence the guns and uphold the values of the United Nations Charter,” he added.
Stéphane Dujarric, spokesman for the secretary-general, has said that the United Nations has reached more than 5.4 million people across the country with humanitarian assistance since the war began. “This is 1.3 million more people than what we reported last week,” he said at a press conference.
“More than 4.7 million men, women and children have received food assistance and almost 1.5 million of them have accessed critical medical care,” he stressed, adding that workers have provided protection services at border crossings and in psychological support to more than 370,000 people.
