United Nations Video: Ukraine, Myanmar, Sri Lanka & other topics - Daily Press Briefing (17 August 2022)


Related Videos On: Ukraine, Myanmar, Sri Lanka & other topics - Daily Press Briefing (17 August 2022)


Noon briefing by Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesperson for the Secretary-General. Highlights: - Ukraine - Myanmar - Sri Lanka - Bangladesh - Central African Republic - Yemen - Chad UKRAINE Today, the Secretary-General arrived in Lviv where, tomorrow, he will join President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in a meeting hosted by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine, as we mentioned to you yesterday. The Secretary-General will also go on to visit Odesa and then Istanbul in the following days. MYANMAR The Special Envoy of the Secretary-General on Myanmar, Noeleen Heyzer, met with State Administration Council (SAC) Chairman Senior General Min Aung Hlaing in Nay Pyi Taw today, in her first visit to Myanmar as Special Envoy. She discussed in person the pragmatic steps to de-escalate the violence, address the multidimensional crisis and advance unfettered humanitarian assistance free of discrimination to all people in need. Her visit follows her extensive consultations with actors from across the political spectrum, civil society and communities affected by the conflict.    In a statement, the Special Envoy said that her visit was to convey the concern of the United Nations and to propose concrete steps needed to reduce the conflict and suffering of the people. UN engagement does not in any way confer legitimacy, she added. Ms. Heyzer stated that any progress in Myanmar depended on an end to the violence and visible and significant improvements in the lives of people on the ground. Following the recent death sentences carried out against pro-democracy activists that the United Nations has strongly condemned, the Special Envoy directly urged the Senior General to impose a moratorium on all future executions. She also reiterated the United Nations Secretary-General’s call for the release of all political prisoners. The Special Envoy raised her request for a meeting with State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi following her latest sentencing. She added that she was deeply concerned about Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s health and well-being in her current situation and requests that she can return home soon. We have more details in a press release. SRI LANKA In Sri Lanka, the UN team, led by Resident Coordinator Hanaa Singer-Hamdy, signed today with authorities a new roadmap to advance the Sustainable Development Goals in the next five years—the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework. This aims to revitalize economic activities, also impacted by the pandemic and improve social services, decent employment, social cohesion, health and well-being for all people. The UN team is also supporting Sri Lanka’s most immediate needs to prevent a humanitarian crisis, targeting 1.7 million people with health care and essential medicines. In addition to the $38 million that our team has raised, the development framework further injects an estimated $60 million from the UN team’s core budget allocations – and we thank our Member States for this essential contribution – also bringing an additional $325 million through other resources in the next five years.

United Nations Video: Ukraine, Black Sea Grain Initiative, Kenya & other topics - Daily Press Briefing (16 August 2022)


Related Videos On: Ukraine, Black Sea Grain Initiative, Kenya & other topics - Daily Press Briefing (16 August 2022)


Noon briefing by Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General. Highlights: - Secretary-General - Black Sea Grain Initiative - Kenya - Internet Governance - Myanmar - Mali - Democratic Republic of the Congo - Cuba - Uzbekistan - Minamata Convention SECRETARY-GENERAL At the invitation of President Volodymyr Zelinskyy of Ukraine, the Secretary-General will be in Lviv on Thursday to attend a trilateral meeting with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkïye and the Ukrainian leader. The Secretary-General will then go on to Odesa, where he will visit the port that is one of the three being used as part of the Black Sea Grain Initiative. Before returning to New York over the weekend, the Secretary-General will be in Istanbul to visit the Joint Coordination Centre set up to implement the initiative. As you will all recall, this initiative is part of a deal that also includes the facilitation of Russian grain and fertilizer exports on to the global market. BLACK SEA GRAIN INITIATIVE Linked to that initiative, the first maritime shipment of Ukrainian wheat for humanitarian operations run by the UN World Food Programme left Ukraine today. It is another important milestone in efforts to get much needed Ukrainian grain out of the conflict-hit country, back into global markets, and to countries worst affected by the global food crisis. The shipment of 23,000 metric tons of wheat will go to WFP’s humanitarian response in the Horn of Africa where the threat of famine stalks the drought-hit region. It is one of many areas around the world where the near complete halt of Ukrainian grain and food on global market has made life even harder for families already struggling with rising hunger. According to the World Food Programme, a record 345 million people in 82 countries are now facing acute food insecurity while up to 50 million people in 45 countries are right on the edge of famine and risk being tipped over without humanitarian support. The World Food Programme notes that with commercial and humanitarian maritime traffic now resuming in and out of Ukraine’s Black Sea ports, some global supply disruptions will ease with relief for countries facing the worst of the global food crisis. Crucially, WFP says it will allow Ukraine to empty its grain storage silos ahead of the summer season harvest. WFP said that despite these positive developments, the world still faces an unprecedented food crisis. They stress that immediate action is needed that brings together the humanitarian community, governments, and the private sector to save lives and invest in long term solutions. KENYA On Kenya, I just want to flag to you that a very short while ago the Secretary-General spoke by phone with William Ruto, and will try to speak with Raila Odinga tomorrow, based on Mr. Odinga’s own availability. The Secretary-General expressed his admiration for the way the Kenyans conducted these elections and hopes the process is concluded soon within the existing constitutional and legal framework.

United Nations Video: Afghanistan: one year since the Taliban takeover - Press Conference (15 August 2022)


Related Videos On: Afghanistan: one year since the Taliban takeover - Press Conference (15 August 2022)


The Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General at the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), Ramiz Alakbarov, today (15 Aug) said that one year after the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, “the worst-case scenario was averted.” Briefing remotely from Afghanistan, Alakbarov, who is also the Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in the country, said, “throughout this year, the humanitarian actors, the UN agencies, humanitarian agencies, all partners who decided to stay and deliver in Afghanistan, over the period of time, have maintained probably the largest and the most unprecedented humanitarian lifeline delivery operation for the people of Afghanistan.” He said, “throughout these interventions the lives of millions of people of Afghans were saved, community education programs supported, health outreach was sustained, and the worst-case scenario was averted.” The UNAMA official stressed that humanitarian conditions remain dire. He said, “it’s a heart-breaking scene, you have children malnourished, in (inaudible) condition. The outcomes for them are going to be very negative. They will not survive this winter. Large groups of population in remote areas where the winter is harsh. Afghanistan has very harsh winters and temperatures are very cold. And indeed, it can lead only to very negative consequences.” Alakbarov said, “the people of Afghanistan are known for their resilience and their ability to survive. Unfortunately, negative coping strategy for Afghanistan were already quite (inaudible). You've seen people selling organs, you've seen people selling children - this has been widely covered in the media. So, this is what we will be seeing again, if support is not provided.” Soaring food and fuel prices – worsened by a drought and the war in Ukraine – mean that roughly 95 per cent of the population, and nearly all female-headed households, do not get enough to eat. Afghanistan was already struggling with education even before the Taliban takeover last August, as more than four million children were already out of school, 60 percent of them girls. Afghanistan is the only country in the world where girls are banned from going to high school and effectively barred from political participation, as the Taliban has an all-male cabinet and there is no Ministry of Women’s Affairs.

United Nations Video: "We need to end the conflict, not merely manage it" - Special Envoy for Yemen | Security Council


Related Videos On: "We need to end the conflict, not merely manage it" - Special Envoy for Yemen | Security Council


Briefing the Security Council today (15 August) in New York, Grundberg that “failure to reach an agreement to extend the truce would lead to renewed cycles of escalation and violence, with predictable and devastating consequences for Yemen’s population. Yemen urgently needs to avoid this scenario.” The Special Envoy called on the parties to choose to build the necessary confidence to avoid a return to war and to begin to build a lasting peace. Two weeks ago, the parties agreed to extend the truce in Yemen under the same terms for another two months, from 2 August 2022 until 2 October. This truce extension includes a commitment from the parties to intensify negotiations to reach an expanded truce agreement as soon as possible. On the implementation of the current truce, Grundberg said that it continues to hold in military terms. He noted that no major military operations or changes to frontlines have occurred, and there have been neither confirmed airstrikes inside Yemen nor cross-border attacks emanating from Yemen. The Special Envoy also said there is a significant decline in civilian casualties, with the first week of August seeing the lowest civilian casualty count since the start of the truce and the beginning of the war. A worrying development is an increase in child casualties, which now constitute about 40 percent of reported civilian casualties. The Special Envoy also said that the flow of fuel imports to Hodeidah port continues with the extension of the truce. Since the start of the truce, 33 ships were cleared to enter Hodeidah port, bringing in almost one million metric tons of various fuel products. Regarding the opening of Sana’a International Airport to commercial flights, Grundberg said that to date, 31 round-trip flights operated to and from Sana’a, transporting more than 15,000 passengers. “From the beginning, I have made it clear that the truce is an interim measure that aims to halt hostilities and address urgent humanitarian and economic needs,” stressed the Special Envoy. He continued saying that his proposal for the expanded truce agreement includes: 1) an agreement on a transparent and effective disbursement mechanism for the regular payment of civil servant salaries and civilian pensions; 2) the opening of additional roads in Taiz and other governorates; 3) additional destinations to and from Sana’a International Airport; 4) regular flow of fuel to the ports of Hodeidah. According to Grundberg, an expanded agreement would provide for movement along a multi-track process to address additional humanitarian and economic issues and create a more conducive environment to start discussions on a durable ceasefire and prepare for the resumption of a Yemeni-led political process under UN auspices. The Special Envoy said that he would continue to count on the support of the international community for the truce's implementation, extension, and expansion. “We have a joint responsibility in helping Yemen and its population to take the necessary and decisive steps towards peace,” he concluded.

Officials in a school district near Fort Worth, Texas, have directed school staff and librarians to temporarily remove books challenged through the district's formal complaint process in the past school year, including the Bible and an illustrated adaptation of Anne Frank's diary. The Keller Independent School District Board of Trustees adopted policies last week that set new standards for how books and other instructional materials become selected for schools. The policy includes putting books up for 30 days of public review before they are purchased by libraries and removing challenged materials from shelves while they are under review. #cnntonight #AlisynCamerota #CNN

Related Videos On: Ex-Trump Organization CFO willing to testify against Trump if case advances


The former chief financial officer of the Trump Organization is expected to plead guilty to a 15-year tax fraud scheme, and he is willing to testify in a possible future trial but will not enter into a cooperation agreement to aid New York prosecutors in their criminal investigation of the real estate company's finances, a person familiar with the matter said. Allen Weisselberg, a fiercely loyal, long-time employee of former President Donald Trump's company, is in advanced talks to plead to the indictment, the person said. The judge overseeing the case has set a hearing for Thursday morning. Under the terms of the deal, which is still being finalized, Weisselberg would receive a five-month prison sentence but would serve about 100 days behind bars, the person said. Weisselberg faced up to 15 years in prison. Weisselberg will not sign up as a cooperator, the person said, but he will testify at trial -- if the case moves forward and the Trump Organization does not itself reach a plea agreement. The judge set the trial for October 24. The New York Times first reported details of plea deal. #KaraScannell #ac360 #CNN

Global Video: Ballroom culture: World’s 1st Global Black Pride LGBTQ+ celebrations

The world’s first in-person Global Black Pride (GBP) events were held in Toronto, exactly one month after Pride and overlapping with the city’s Caribbean Carnival. Founded in 2020, it is an event that brings together Black 2SLGBTQIA+ communities across all continents. One of these events was the Black Pride Kiki Ball, co-hosted by the City of Toronto with the Toronto Kiki Ballroom Alliance (TKBA). In Canada, ballroom culture has exploded in recent years. Founded in 2010 in Toronto by Legendary Twysted Miyake-Mugler and Legendary Vixen, TKBA is a space to nurture the needs of 2SLGBTQIA+ BIPOC youth facing barriers and trauma. Started in New York during the 1960s, ballroom spaces were created by the queer and trans Black and Latinx community due to discrimination and a need for a safer nightlife. A function that hosts multiple competitive categories, each event typically consists of a DJ, a commentator, a judges panel, ballroom walkers and spectators coming together to celebrate one another and compete. For the world’s first in-person GBP event, this global event celebrated the unique intersection of these diverse cultures, marking how far the movement has come over the course of 60 years. For those who may be hearing about it for the first time, what exactly is a ball and what does it mean for the community?

Disability is a reality for many Canadians. Yet, people with disabilities often struggle to access businesses, nightclubs and other spaces. This is true in the 2SLGBTQQIA+ community as well. “I feel very isolated in a lot of those spaces because they’re not accessible,” disability awareness consultant Andrew Gurza tells Global News about hot spots in Toronto’s LGBTQ+ neighbourhood, “The Village.” “And if I can access the space a lot of the community doesn’t know how to receive me. Has never seen a disabled person like me in the space.” Global News’ Alyssa Julie spoke to two disabled people in the queer community, who said physical barriers aren’t the only hurdle they encounter.

Global Video: Bisexual erasure: What it is, and how it impacts mental health


Related Videos On: Bisexual erasure: What it is, and how it impacts mental health


Almost 500,000 people in Canada identify as bisexual, according to official data from Statistics Canada. However, although a growing portion of the Canadian population identifies as bisexual, those who come out as such are still met with denial, or their identities are questioned. This phenomenon is referred to as bisexual erasure. One example of this is when a bisexual person is said to be “experimenting,” or transitioning to gay or lesbian, as described by 2SLGBTQQIA+ organizations, like GLAAD or Pflag. Global News’ Alyssa Julie explains what bisexual erasure is and how it can affect the mental health of those impacted.

Global Video: Raging Asian Women make themselves heard through traditional Taiko drumming


Related Videos On: Raging Asian Women make themselves heard through traditional Taiko drumming


In celebration of Asian Heritage Month and Pride in Canada, a group of pan-Asian women and non-binary drummers called Raging Asian Women (RAW), are making themselves heard through the traditional performance of Japanese Taiko drumming, one of the few ensembles of its kind. In Japanese, "taiko" literally means "drum," first used in ancient Japan over 2000 years ago. However the term has also come to refer to the wider art of traditional and modern Japanese drumming, with a mix of various technical rhythms, forms and instruments. The origins of RAW lay in “trying to fight against stereotypes of Asian women as submissive or quiet or powerless,” said Jody Chan, one of the drummers of the group. Y.J., another member of the group, said that “there’s still moments where I just feel a sense of pride and connection that I don’t think I feel anywhere else” when performing or rehearsing. Asian Heritage Month recognizes the contributions and influence of Canadians from diverse Asian backgrounds to the nation’s history, culture, and achievements. Started in the 1990s, the Government of Canada officially designated the month of May for celebrations in 2002. A recent survey released by the Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter (CCNC) and Project 1907 showed that reports of anti-Asian incidents last year saw a 47 per cent increase from 2020.

Global Video: Parosmia: The long COVID-19 symptom that distorts smell and taste


Related Videos On: Parosmia: The long COVID-19 symptom that distorts smell and taste


Parosmia is a post-COVID condition that distorts people's sense of smell, like for third-grade teacher Christine Chipinuck, who has been unable to eat in the staff cafeteria since her diagnosis. It started a few months after recovering from COVID-19, when her toothpaste suddenly tasted rancid and her favourite drink coffee smelled like gasoline. Sometimes she smells hairspray or vomit all day. There are very few things she can eat. There's still a lot to learn about this condition and how long it lasts, but the working theory is COVID-19 affects the receptors in the nose. Su-Ling Goh reports.
