The call was made by Counsellor Minister, Deputy Permanent Representative of Vietnam to the United Nations Nguyen Phuong Tra at a discussion of the United Nations Security Council on October 28 on the implementation of the council’s Resolution 1559 regarding Lebanon and the operation of Committee pursuant to resolution 751 (1992) concerning Somalia.

Adopted in 2004, resolution 1559 called for the disarmament of all militias and the extension of government control over all Lebanese territory.

The Vietnamese representative expressed concern about difficulties facing Lebanon and impact of the crisis in the country to the implementation of the resolution.

Vietnam proposed that the UN Security Council and the UN encourage Lebanon’s leaders to soon form a government to lead the country through the current difficult period.

It also called on the international community to continue supporting Lebanon, especially in enhancing the capacity for the future government and providing humanitarian aids to vulnerable groups such as women, children, the elderly and refugees.

According to UN Deputy Secretary General Rosemary DiCarlo, the situation in Lebanon has not seen positive developments, while the country is facing economic difficulties, increased poverty and unemployment. The country’s sovereignty and territories have continued to be violated.

Resolution 1559 was adopted by the UN in 2004, calling for respect to Lebanon’s sovereignty and international integrity. Meanwhile, the UN Security Council also listened to a report of Committee 751.

The Committee was initially established pursuant to resolution 751 (1992) concerning Somalia on 24 April 1992 to oversee the general and complete arms embargo imposed by Security Council resolution 733 (1992). Following the adoption of resolution 1907 (2009), which imposed a sanctions regime on Eritrea and expanded the Committee's mandate, the Committee changed its name on 26 February 2010 to “Security Council Committee pursuant to resolution 751 (1992) and 1907 (2009) concerning Somalia and Eritrea”.

With the adoption of resolution 2444 (2018), which terminated the Eritrea sanctions regime, the Committee’s name was changed to “Security Council Committee pursuant to resolution 751 (1992) concerning Somalia”.

From 1992, the UN Security convenes meetings every four months to listen to reports on the committee’s operations

The report said that Panel of Experts coordinator highlighted several issues, including the Panel’s relations with the Federal Government of Somalia, Al-Shabaab financing, sanctions listings, the arms embargo and the improvised explosive devices components ban, the charcoal ban, and the humanitarian situation in Somalia.

Committee members welcomed the continued development in the Panel’s relations with the Government and praised the high quality of the Panel’s report, in particular the section analysing Al-Shabaab’s revenue sources, storage and transfer methods, and illegal taxation systems./.
