The discourse was held to share Malaysia’s experience during its latest two-year term at the UNSC.

Dato’ Ramlan, who was Malaysia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations from April 2015 to  December 2016, said that Malaysia’s priorities as a non-permanent member were promoting moderation as an approach and mediation as a tool for peaceful settlement of disputes; promoting the enhancement of UN peacekeeping operations; supporting peace building in countries emerging from conflict; and encouraging continued discussion on the comprehensive UNSC reform. 

Among Malaysia’s numerous contributions and achievements during the two-year term were on the issue of Palestine, which culminated in the adoption of Resolution 2334 in December 2016; the issue of children and armed conflict, which saw the adoption of Resolution 2225 in June 2015; the issue of non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction to non-state actors, where Malaysia hosted a High-Level Open Debate in August 2016; and on the issue of humanitarian, Malaysia consistently advocated actions and supported efforts aimed at alleviating the humanitarian sufferings of the people affected. 

Attended by more than 90 senior representatives from universities, think tanks and government agencies, as well as other diplomacy practitioners, the discourse ended after a very enlightening question and answer session.
