Letter to Mozambique and UAE to support a UNSC Resolution

In a critical move to address escalating threats to international shipping in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, the Steering Committee to the Djibouti Code of Conduct and its Jeddah Amendment, has made an urgent appeal to Mozambique and the United Arab Emirates to advocate for decisive action from the United Nations Security Council.
Representing member states under the Code, the Steering Committee in a signed letter shared on 7 January 2024, called on the two DCoC Signatory states, by virtue of their current and outgoing membership to the UNSC respectively (as non-permanent members), to seek the support of their national delegations to the United Nations to promote the adoption of a Security Council Resolution. Mr. Metse Ralephenya, Chair of the Steering Committee, underscored the significance of these actions in aligning with the DCoC’s objectives for maritime cooperation and sustainable blue economy development, emphasizing the pivotal role of the Security Council in spearheading global efforts.
