Albania aligns itself with the statement of the European Union, and I wish to add the following remarks in my national capacity. I would also like to thank the briefers from civil society, who bring the reality on the ground perspective in this Chamber.
Conflict-related sexual violence is a grave human rights violation and a security challenge. It certainly is as destructive as any weapon. It inflicts unimaginable suffering, it endangers families and communities, and it erodes social and political stability.
In the pervasive way in which it impedes reconciliation and undermines the prospect of peace and reconstruction, sexual abuse is among the worst of crimes.
Yet, despite greater political will and efforts, progress is slow and conflict-related sexual violence has not diminished. Putting an end to impunity, which continues to be the norm, is a priority. The message we send today should be clear: zero tolerance for rape and other forms of sexual violence in conflict. In addition, Member States should also implement policies that redirect the stigma from victims to perpetrators.
We also recognize the important role that civil society and women organizations play in documenting the abuses and in providing survivor-centered responses.
A good example is the partnership of Justice Rapid Response with UN Women, to ensure criminal justice and accountability for sexual violence. Particular attention has been paid to mainstream a gender-sensitive approach in the training of civil, police and military personnel, with a special focus on prevention and response to sexual violence.
I come from a region that, in the recent past, has witnessed firsthand the devastating legacy of sexual violence being used as a tactic of war. Here I would like to mention the case of Kosovo, where rape, targeting civilians, has been deliberately and repeatedly used as a weapon during the war in the late 90s.
They have to struggle with social ostracism, physical and psychological damage, and emotional torment. Despite substantial evidence, not a single case of war related sexual violence has been prosecuted. We regret that the current Report of the Secretary General continues to not mention Kosovo among the post-conflict countries that suffer the consequences of sexual crimes, and we call upon Secretary General to include Kosovo in his future report. This would help acknowledging the survivors and combating the prejudice and shame they face.
It is our collective responsibility to closely cooperate and take concrete actions in order to prevent sexual violence, protect survivors and bring perpetrators to justice. Skip to main content.

President, At the outset, I would like to thank the delegation of Ukraine for choosing such an interesting and important topic for the second open debate of their presidency. President, I will focus my intervention on issues of stability and security in my region, South East Europe. Albania has continuously strived to facilitate peace, reconciliation and cooperation in our part of the world. All the Western Balkan countries are now involved, albeit in different stages, in the process of European and Euro Atlantic integration, and are actively cooperating with each other. Dialogue has substituted conflict, even when we disagree. Nonetheless, although the progress achieved is immense, it remains fragile and can be put at risk, as some irresponsible and provocative actions have demonstrated lately, if the unfinished business in the Western Balkans is not properly addressed. Mr, President, The EU facilitated dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia needs to accelerate and lead to the normalization of relations between the two countries.
