Judging by the report to #Putin, yesterday's talks between #Russian Foreign Minister #Lavrov & his Turkish counterpart Çavuşoğlu didn't bring any significant results. They agreed to continue discussing sensitive issues, refraining from harmful to bilateral relations steps
1/9
#Putin was dissatisfied with the result of #Lavrov's visit to #Turkey & talked about the fact that the Turkish side in the negotiation process is seeking tangible concessions to the detriment of #Russian positions. He traditionally gave Lavrov rollicking
2/9
It's important for #Putin to understand the actions of the Turkish leadership & to have close contact with #Erdogan, given the preparation and possible implementation of a geopolitical project in the #Caucasus

You may leave the room, maybe it's easier not to listen to the truth, dear Ambassador #Nebenzia @RussiaUN

@UN #SecurityCouncil #UNSC
The Kremlin is using food supplies as a stealth missile against developing countries.

This is driving up food prices, pushing people into poverty, and destabilising entire regions.

Russia is solely responsible for this food crisis.

Despite its campaign of lies.

@UN #UNSC
It is Russia's tanks, bombs and mines that are preventing #Ukraine from planting and harvesting.

The Kremlin is also targeting grain storages and stealing grain from areas it has occupied while shifting the blame on others.

This is cowardly. This is propaganda.

Starting from May 17, all reports to #Putin go through the Secretary of the #SecurityCouncil, #Patrushev. For most of the issues that require the permission or opinion of the president, the decision is now made personally by Patrushev and he informs Putin in his final report
1/5
Even the First Deputy Chief of the Presidential Administration, Sergei Kiriyenko, who traditionally has direct access to the #president, now reports to and receives assignments and recommendations from #Patrushev
2/5
Also, #Gerasimov, Putin's dismissed Chief of the General Staff, reported to #Patrushev yesterday, after telephone conversations with Mark Milley, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff.
#Putin himself has held only two phone conversations personally since Tuesday

If convoked, this will be the 11th Emergency Special Session (ESS) of the @UN #GA in history. The 1st was res/377 (V) “Uniting for Peace” of 1950. This will be the first on #Ukraine
ESS can be convened when the #SecurityCouncil bc of “lack of unanimity of the permanent members” fails its primary resp for the maintenance of intl peace&security in a case where there is a “threat to the peace, breach of the peace or act of aggression”. Ref text in reso in blue.
The #UNGA ESS convenes within 24 hours to make “recommendations” for collective measures.
 
Previously #ESS have been convened by #SC on e.g. #MiddleEast, Suez Crisis, Hungary, Lebanon, Congo, Afghanistan (1950s-80).

What does #Russia in relation to #Ukraine have in common - from the perspective of (mis)application of international law - with #Israel in relation to #Palestine? The answer is the obscure 'Missing Reversioner Doctrine.' A thread: Image
In 1968, with the nascent #Israeli occupation of #Palestinian territory, Prof. Yehuda Blum penned the ‘The Missing Reversioner: Reflections on the Status of Judea and Samaria’. Blum argued that there were no reversionary rights of an ousted legitimate government to the territory Image
In other words, he concluded that ‘those rules of belligerent occupation directed to safeguarding that sovereign’s reversionary rights had no application to #Israel’s control of the #WestBank and #Gaza. Hence, Israeli possession comes from an absolute title, not an occupation.

In UN #SecurityCouncil on counter-terrorism resolutions, I said:
➡️ Al-Qaida & #ISIL affiliated terrorist groups like Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, Jaish-i-Mohammed, Harakat-ul-Mujahidin continue cross-border attacks on India
➡️ Listed terrorist entities continue to raise funds
1/3
In #UNSC meeting, I added:
➡️ Perpetrators of #MumbaiTerrorAttack at large & enjoy state hospitality
➡️ Such States are guilty of double-speak & of supporting terrorism, providing financial assistance & safe havens
➡️ International community must hold such States accountable
2/3
In this meeting of #UNSC, I also said:
➡️ India’s resolution in First Committee of #UNGA on “Measures to prevent terrorists from acquiring weapons of mass destruction” was adopted by consensus
➡️ India looks forward to assuming Chair of Counterterrorism Committee next year

Amb. Sinirlioğlu @UN #SecurityCouncil: @OPCW still cannot confirm that the regime’s chemical weapons declaration is accurate and complete. The regime refuses to grant visas to @OPCW officials, as part of a broader pattern of its non-compliance under the #CWC obligations.
#SecurityCouncil members must put differences aside and enforce the Resolution 2118(2013). Turkey supports efforts within @OPCW towards full compliance. We strongly condemn the repeated use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime against its own people.
Urgent need to ensure full accountability for Assad regime’s war crimes and crimes against humanity. This is the legal, historical and ethical responsibility for us all, but especially for those who are emboldening the regime in its current course.

@UNGeneva is reliving the tragic end of #LeagueOfNations. About 90 years ago, #Ethiopia was unforgettably betrayed by the #West when invaded by #Italy.
Now, #UN is sponsoring disintegration of 🇪🇹 by helping a #terrorist with its malicious agencies alongside #US

#EnoughIsEnough
And @WhiteHouse is calling upon its ultimate hand @UNGeneva's #SecurityCouncil to intimidate #Ethiopia.
Well, the world especially #Africa is watching. No country in #Africa misses that the same would happen when they stand for their people.
@UNGeneva is being tested & failing.
@WFP_Ethiopia, @UNICEFEthiopia & @USAIDEthiopia did all the despicable vicious conspiracies to help #TPLFTerroristGroup kill, commit #massacre, render millions into #IDPs and mainly dismantle #Ethiopia. All of these is happening under #UN's watch.

On Nov. 25, #Armenia handed the #Kalbajar district back to #Azerbaijan, in line with the Nov. 10 agreement, which also ended the 44-day-war in #Karabakh. Here is a THREAD link.medium.com/U1xKXQJiHbb
Thus a 27-year-long illegal occupation of #Kalbajar came to an end. Tens of thousands of forcibly displaced #Azerbaijani residents of Kalbajar will finally be able to return home.
The invasion and total ethnic cleansing of #Kalbajar by #Armenia in early April 1993 was one of the most crucial moments and darkest chapters in the #Armenia-#Azerbaijan conflict.

#Israel FM @Gabi_Ashkenazi: I would like to thank the US for its dedicated action, led by President Trump and Secretary Pompeo, at the #UN #SecurityCouncil, in preventing the lifting of #Iran's arms embargo. >>
.@Gabi_Ashkenazi: ...I call upon all countries to stand alongside the US, to refrain from sale if weapons to #Iran and enforcing the sanctions in their entirety. >>
.@Gabi_Ashkenazi: ... I call on our friends, the E3 countries – France, Britain, and Germany – to pullback their opposition and work towards a rigorous implemention of the sanctions regime on #Iran, both on state level, as well as on the #EU level and within the #UN bodies.

- @JustinTrudeau -when will you comply with Canadian and international law? No wonder you didn't get seat on @UN #SecurityCouncil
Calling all #Canadians - pls sign/share this petition
#CdnPoli #HumanRights #StopAnnexation of #Palestine #FreePalestine #BanSettlementProducts
This petition has 3 demands- calling on #Canada to:

1- Ban the importation of settlement products into Canada and incorporate a settlement exclusion clause into the Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement;
2- Formally "differentiate" between Israel ‘proper’ and the OPT, as mandated by Item 5 of UNSC Resolution 2334 and Article 25 of the UN Charter;

.@CanadaFP supposedly "rebuts" @UN Security Council critics, as @FP_Champagne Champagne to #NYC for final #UNSCelections push nationalpost.com/wcm/5fc01020-6… via @nationalpost
BUT : where's the "rebuttal", @cbcasithappens @cbcradio
@CBCTheHouse @ChrisHallCBC @CBCday6? #NoUNSC4Canada
The letter which @BlanchardCanada sent to @UN ambassadors (but "neglected" to release publicly) see: justpeaceadvocates.ca/1000-letters-s… claims there are "significant inaccuracies" about @canadaFP's positions on #Israel & #Palestine in the #NoUNSC4Canada letter:
But as Fr. Robert Assaly points out in his letter (which WAS released publicly), @BlanchardCanada fails to identify a single actual inaccuracy in the #NoUNSC4Canada letter.

It's happening! Russian media report that P5 leaders will hold a video summit on #COVID19 this Friday. A few notes on why this makes me unreasonably excited [1/5]
In the short term, a P5 "virtual summit" is (hopefully) a signal that the #SecurityCouncil will get behind a @franceonu's push for a resolution backing @antonioguterres #GlobalCeasefire appeal, albeit with caveats [2/5]. crisisgroup.org/global/global-…
I am not sure that a #UNSC resolution on #COVID19 will fully restore the SC's credibility after weeks of P5 bickering over how to react to the #pandemic and #globalceasefire, but it's probably still better than nothing. [3/5] foreignpolicy.com/2020/04/17/tru…

Day 3 - last day of #ICJ provisional measures hearings, #TheGambia v #Myanmar #GenocideConvention #Rohingya. First up, #TheGambia Reichler: Myanmar not denied UN #FFM conclusion of “inference of genocidal intent” or the 7 indicators; 2019 report para 224 - extreme brutality;
Quoted ASSK admission of #IHL violations; ignoring of #sexual violence; #hate narratives - commander in chief Min Aung Hlaing #Facebook page quoted; discriminatory policies including #citizenship law & NVC process; govt tolerance of hate; failure to investigate prosecute
This last one was the only point disputed by Myanmar - “what state is she talking about?” - military justice system must investigate & prosecute - difficulties admitted by ASSK; how can the #Tatmadaw hold itself accountable when top 6 commanders recommend for prosecution?
