China urges respect for national ownership in UN post-conflict peacebuilding


08:21, July 13, 2012

UNITED NATOINS, July 12 (Xinhua) -- Post-conflict peacebuilding should be carried out on the basis of respect for the sovereignty and will of the countries in transition from war to peace, a Chinese diplomat said here Thursday.

"The United Nations Post-conflict Peacebuilding Commission ( PBC) and all relevant parties should fully respect national ownership of the countries concerned,"said Li Baodong, China's permanent representative to the United Nations, at an open debate of the UN Security Council on post-conflict peacebuilding.

Li stressed that post-conflict countries bear the primary responsibilities for building peace in their own countries, while the PBC in assisting such countries to build peace should respect their will and try to help them strengthen national capacity building, including enhancing their capacity in civil administration and national governance.

"The PBC should help post-conflict countries to mobilize necessary resources in accordance with their national situation and specific priorities,"he said. "The priorities for post- conflict peacebuilding are to stabilize the security situation, to promote the political reconciliation, and to strengthen the development of democracy."

Furthermore, the Chinese ambassador called on the PBC to continue to make an effort to improve its working methods and enhance its efficiency.

He also hoped that the PBC would enhance coordination and cooperation with major UN entities, international financial institutions and regional organizations.

Established by the UN Security Council and the General Assembly in 2005, the PBC is an inter-governmental advisory body, tasked with recommending strategies for post-conflict peacebuilding and recovery efforts throughout the world.
