Statement by Ambassador Boštjan Malovrh, Permanent Representative of the Republic of
SLOVENIA to the United Nations at the Thematic Consultation 3 of "Our Common Agenda"
United Nations, New York, 21 February 2022
We align ourselves with the statement delivered by the EU and would like to make additional
remarks in our national capacity.
While all five clusters are equally important and interconnected, however, this third thematic
consultation on the Frameworks for a peaceful world – promoting peace, international law and
digital cooperation is particularly relevant at this moment in time. The number of conflicts and
crises is rising at an alarming rate. The nature of conflict is ever evolving and demands constant
vigilance and new approaches.
The Secretary-General’s New Agenda for Peace that provides a comprehensive, integrated and
inclusive approach to peace and security has our full support.
It is important to also look at strengthening the responsiveness, efficiency and transparency of
the work of the Security Council. Slovenia, also as a member of the ACT group, continues to call
on member statesto join the Code of Conduct regarding the use of veto in Security Council action
against genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes, as well as the Political Declaration on
Suspension of Veto Powers in Cases of Mass Atrocity.
On international law;
The purposes and principles of the Charter and international law remain an indispensable
foundation for peaceful relations between States. We are therefore pleased to see Our Common
Agenda's focus on the rule of law and the development and implementation of international law.
We welcome the Secretary General's proposal for a global road map for the development and
effective implementation of international law aimed at encouraging compliance with
international law, it could also represent a step towards encouraging more States to ratify or
accede to treaties of universal interest.
We also welcome the consideration of holding regular inclusive dialogues on legal matters of
global concern at the General Assembly; and we would like to highlight the important role of the
International Law Commission in the promotion of the progressive development of international
law and its codification.
We recognize the importance of the United Nations as a vital forum for the ongoing discussions
on the development of international legal norms and standards in the field of information and
communications technology, which we consider a matter of particular global concern
extract 19 nov continuing our after action reporting-(see also latest reports from economistwormen.com)-
Access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene are basic to progress. Yet more than half of the world’s population still lacks proper sanitation. As countries urbanise and population grow, the most disadvantaged will continue to bear the brunt of poor sanitation. Access to safe and adequate sanitation is also fundamental to public health in pandemics, in lowering the risk of disease and preventing premature deaths.
The World Toilet Organization’s work over the last 20 years has been critical to raising awareness and mobilising collective action to tackle the problem. The World Toilet Summit has succeeded in bringing together stakeholders to find lasting solutions, and the World Toilet College has trained more than 23,000 people on the importance of sanitation. World Toilet Day has been designated by the UN since 2013.
The World Toilet Organization’s efforts have made a significant contribution to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 6 on Clean Water and Sanitation for all. I wish the World Toilet Organization continued success in uplifting the dignity and livelihoods of vulnerable populations globally."
