Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends

President Joko Widodo delivered his speech in the High Level Week of UNGA 76th Session

Here comes another week in September.

September has always been one of the busiest months in our year. Work wise, it is the peak season of United Nations General Assembly. Series of high - level meetings have been scheduled, packed with the delivery of the main statement by our president, sidelined by various high-level summit, commemoration, meetings and more.

Our delegation to New York is headed by Her Excellency Minister Retno Marsudi. We have rather small entourage considering the pandemic here, but the works are still abundant as the meetings attended by her are a lot as well. Again good thing we have the great team and together we prepare those meetings one by one. Issues ranging from the pandemic, vaccines, climate change, global conflicts, and more are on the agenda, causing a bit of a tsunami in terms of work load. But then again, it is always interesting to hear updates and more deliberation on the issues at hands.  Again, wish us luck.

More over, we are working steadily in the packing department. It's a back-and-bone-breaking work but we are making progress indeed. Super happy yet super tired at the same time. But I guess everything is as expected and hopefully we are ready to depart to Wellington, New Zealand at the scheduled time.

Now, let's enjoy Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends.

Indonesia's s Presidency for United Nations Security Council - Open Debate on Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflicts

New York City was summery that day.
After having my shaum at 3 AM in the morning, we were getting ready for the D-Day.
Yes, Thursday, May 23rd, Indonesia was once again chairing the Open Debate at the UN Security Council. 
I put on one of my favorite batik outer from Sekar Kedaton.
It was red, white and blue.
How perfect as it reflects the colors of Indonesian flags,- red and white,- and blue representing the United Nations. What a coincidence!
Then we did the final check on draft statements, Chair's notes, possible scenarios, draft summaries and reports, and media materials.
All checked and done!
9 AM we were heading to the UN Headquarters and made the final preparation in the meeting room.
Then 9.50 AM, the Ministed for Foreign Affairs of Indonesia, H.E. Mrs. Retno Marsudi, and the UN Secretary-General, H.E. Mr. Antonio Gutteres joined us in the meeting room.
After a few courtesy talks and photo sessions, including with Ambassadors of Russia, Poland, and South Africa who were wearing their beautiful batik shirts and stolla, we all were ready to start.
Let the meeting begin..

Indonesia, the UN Security Council President for May 2019

Here's the first note on Indonesia's s Presidency at United Nations Security Council for the month of May 2019.

As I have mentioned in my previous post before and shared it at WW: Indonesia's Presidency for United Nations Security Council, Indonesia is continuing its presidency through Open Debate on Protection of Civilians during armed conflict. the debate was taken place in May 23rd, 2019, in UN Headquarters in New York City. Beside that, we have series of side event and other meetings as well during this month, including consultation on Middle East issue.

This Open Debate was an integrated part of main events under the Council Presidency of Indonesia in May 2019 with a particular theme of “Investing in Peace”. As you can see, we had our signature event on Peacekeeping in the beginning of May. We also had photo exhibition on Investing in Peace during our signature event.

The meeting was also convened to mark the 20th anniversary of the UN Security Council seizing the Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict as an item on its agenda and the 70th anniversary of the 1949 Geneva Conventions on international humanitarian law. It is indeed on of the important issues being discussed in the august Hall.

After the meeting..

The Open Debate was chaired by Minister Marsudi as the President of the Council in May 2019 and attended by around [80 UN member countries]. Among the prominent briefers are the UN Secretary-General who presented the annual report on PoC. President of ICRC, Peter Maurer, as well as CIVIC’s Executive Director, Federico Borello.

before the meeting..

The Report of the Secretary-General has identified numerous achievements during the last 20 years. Nevertheless, a lot of challenges in the protection of civilians recently are quite daunting. Numbers of civilian casualties from numerous conflicts in many corners of the world are steadily increasing. This is obviously a bleak picture for all of us.

In that context, Minister Marsudi urged international community to intensify their efforts in protecting civilians. “[We] must identify ways and means to make further progress in saving life. …We should focus on the people”, explained Minister Marsudi further.

This Open Debate reaffirms Indonesia’s support to strengthen international partnership in advancing the promotion of human rights, in particular civilians in armed conflict. Indonesia has been contributed through its active role in various international forum and technical assistance to various countries in the promotion of good governance issue.

During her speech in national capacity,  Minister Marsudi stressed the importance of community empowerment as the key element to strengthen national capacity in protecting civilians. It is important as members of the community are the first to  Participation from local community in the design and implementation of the civilians protection programs is needed to ensure that the tailor-made programs meet the needs of the affected communities.

In conclusions, the issue of protection of civilians in armed conflict is multidimensional in nature. In this regard, Minister Marsudi strongly suggested what further actions to take in countering those challenges. First, the need to strengthen national capacity of the State concerned. Second, the importance of ensuring effective implementation and compliance. And third, the importance of affirming women’s role and contribution as the agent of peace and security.

Again I was indeed very privileged  to be part of the team for the preparation and the conduct of this Open Debate. And may we all live in a better and more peaceful world. Amen.

Hello, New York City!

Happy to be back to the Big Apple!
As I have mentioned before in my previous posts, Indonesia is the President of the UN Security Council for May 2019. This week, I will be at the Council for series of meeting for Open Debate on Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict. Previously, we had our signature event for the Open Debate for Peacekeeping Operations. Well, it's been a tough journey during the preparation as the Minister herself will be chairing the meeting and the consultation. But I am glad to be part of this historical moment. So wish me luck!

Meanwhile, enjoy some photos captured here and there in New York City, particularly Grand Central!

Spending around 9 days here in New York City, I stopped over in Tokyo before, enjoying a brief city tour to Meiji Shrine and Harajuku area. I have posted in my previous post in WW: Meiji Shrine, Tokyo, Japan if you want to see more photos of this spot.
