Latvian Foreign Affairs Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs proposes radically improving United Nations Organization’s rapid response capabilities in peacekeeping missions, as reported by Foreign Affairs Ministry.

«Work aimed at improving cooperation with regional associates, such as the African Union and the European Union, is especially welcome,» as noted in the ministry’s announcement.

The ministry notes that on Wednesday, 20 September, Rinkēvičs voiced Latvia’s position on the necessity for reformation of UN peacekeeping operations at the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly in New York, USA.

Latvia’s minister emphasized Latvia’s support of the partnership between the UN and the European Union, which has provided tangible results in regions impacted by crises, such as the Central African Republic and Mali, the ministry adds.

Rinkēvičs’ speech also mentioned that the main goal of reforming UN peacekeeping efforts is achieving peacekeeping missions with realistic mandates that fit the practical needs of regions engulfed in crises. «To ensure effective realization of specific duties, protection of civilian populations and UN personnel, it is necessary to improve planning, equipment and training capabilities.»

The minister also pointed towards the existing challenges the UN faces in its peacekeeping operations. For example, to ensure effective realization of UN mandates, which include protection of UN mission personnel and civil population of regions in crises, proper training and equipment for UN workers is vital but remains a major problem.

Foreign Affairs Ministry adds that because the situation in regions affected by crises continues to worsen, it is necessary to improve the capacity of information analysis.
