Follow-up of National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security

5-2-2020

In the framework of her visits to officials for working out the implementation of the UN Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (https://bit.ly/2GUPCW7), NCLW president, Claudine Aoun Rukuz met yesterday with the newly appointed minister of defense, deputy prime minister, Zeina Akar Adra. Discussions centered on adopted mechanisms for the implementation phase of above resolution and procedures to be taken by the Lebanese government to activate the role of women in securing the conditions for peace and security. These should be reportedly based on the acknowledgment by the UN resolution of the significance of women’s engagement in the armed forces and their pivotal role in building societies and leading reform. Recalling, that the draft ministerial statement contained 5 clauses involving women’s rights (https://lkdg.org/en/node/19205), including those that require the enactment of the Cabinet decision related to the above UN Resolution.
