NEWYORK — HH Prince Zeid, Jordan’s permanent representative at the UN, on Wednesday stressed that the UN needs to do more to safeguard international peace and security.

Speaking at an open UN Security Council session, the prince said: “Stopping the killing is much easier than ending a conflict,” adding that the council should consider this as its main goal.

The council on Wednesday discussed a concept paper, presented by Prince Zeid, entitled “War, its lessons, and the search for a permanent peace”.

More than 50 UN member states participated in the debate.
