Description

A Security Council VTC open debate on the theme "Enhancing maritime security: a case for international cooperation", under the item "Maintenance of international peace and security" (S/2021/680) 

A comprehensive approach to maritime security is indispensable to safeguarding common prosperity and security interests, as it effectively protects and supports legitimate activities while countering the threat of current and emerging hostile, illegal or dangerous acts within the maritime domain. 

Objective of the meeting: The meeting will provide the Member States of the Security Council an opportunity to discuss the measures to be taken by the United Nations and Member States to evolve a framework which would enhance their coordination in responding to non-traditional maritime security threats as well as unprecedented maritime situations, and the ways in which they can individually and jointly better respect their humanitarian commitments with regard to difficulties at sea.
