Mr. President,

Our delegation is grateful to you for convening this meeting to discuss the Security Council Annual Report to the General Assembly of 2019, contained in document A/73/2.

Once again, the annual report of such a relevant organ in the maintenance of international peace and security is merely a descriptive account of meetings, activities and decisions of the Security Council, when the vast majority of United Nations Member States have questioned whether this is just a formal and uncritical exercise.

Mr. President,

We appreciate this meeting of the Committee on Relations with the Host Country.

The legal mechanisms established to resolve disputes and restore violated rights should be used.
