General Assembly resolution for the agression against Ukraine

Statement by

H. E. Mr. Mohamed Siad Doualeh
Ambassador, Permanent Representative
Permanent Mission of the Republic of Djibouti
to the United Nations

Before the
Emergency Special Session
of the
United Nations General Assembly

on the

Situation in Ukraine

Ukrainians may have decided to valiantly defend their country and not surrender, but if the war does not stop now, they may not survive! As the Ukrainian representative powerfully stated, “if Ukraine does not survive, international law will not survive”. The aggression against Ukraine places under stress the system of international law and international relations that the Charter put into place. Let us not allow decades of efforts to strengthen the rule of law and revitalize multilateralism go down the drain.

Djibouti will therefore vote yes to reaffirm its solidarity to the people of Ukraine!
It will vote yes to uphold the UN Charter!
It will vote yes to reject the use of armed force under any pretext and aggression against a sovereign country!
It will vote yes in support to the sanctity of borders!
