Permanent Representative of China to the United Nations, called on the international community on the 3rd to bring to justice the criminal acts of foreign troops stationed in post-conflict countries.
On the same day, the United Nations Security Council held a video public meeting on “Peacebuilding and Sustainable Peace: Security Sector Reform”. Zhang Jun attended the meeting and expounded China’s position. He pointed out that security sector reform is an important foundation for achieving durable peace and sustainable development. The reform should be led by the country concerned, and the national conditions and specific conditions of the country concerned should be formed to form a “one country, one policy”.
Zhang Jun pointed out that post-conflict countries are facing security threats such as terrorism, violent extremism and ethnic conflicts, and face new risks such as cybersecurity and transnational organized crime. Early warning capabilities, emergency response capabilities and counter-terrorism capabilities should be improved through reform.
Zhang Jun stressed that the post-conflict countries are still facing serious challenges brought about by criminal acts of foreign troops. It is necessary to improve the rule of law, bring various criminal acts to justice, and resolutely put an end to extrajudicial acts.
Zhang Jun pointed out that security sector reform should be integrated into the overall development strategy of post-conflict countries and promote reforms in the fields of economy and the rule of law in coordination. Bilateral partners should actively provide assistance to ensure that security sector reform has adequate and sustainable resource guarantees.
