HRC25: High-Level Dialogue on Sexual Violence in DRC

Thank you Mr. President.

I make this statement on behalf of the Sexual Rights Initiative.

We welcome Security Council Resolution 2122, which invites the Secretary General to commission a global study on the implementation of Resolution 1325. We also welcome HRC Resolution 24/27, highlighting the persistence of a very high level of cases of sexual violence, used as a weapon of war in conflict, and the recommendations contained therein.
