Mr. President,

I have the honour to speak on behalf of the Baltic and Nordic States: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Norway, Sweden and my own country Lithuania. Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Ireland, and Poland align themselves with this statement.

With the global number of refugees and displaced persons reaching tens of millions of persons, including hundreds of thousands in Georgia, the urgency to address the needs and plight of those affected is more than evident.

The World Humanitarian Summit and UN summit for Refugees and Migrants held in 2016 have once again highlighted the crippling impact that protracted conflicts and continued displacement have on affected persons and communities, with serious repercussions at a regional and international level. Therefore we fully support the UN Secretary-General’s call for renewed efforts to prevent internal displacement, address its root causes and  support affected communities.

This resolution commits us all to continue working for the protection and assistance to those who have been forcibly displaced from the Abkhazia and Tskhinvali/South Ossetia regions of Georgia.
