European Parliament resolution on the reform of the UN 
B6‑0492/2005

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to its resolutions on UN matters, especially that on EU-UN relations of 29 January 2004 and that on UN reform of 9 June 2005,

–  having regard to the statement of the EU presented in the general debate of the 60th Session of the UN General Assembly,

–  having regard to the 2005 World Summit outcome document, adopted on 15 September 2005,

–  having regard to Rule 103(2) of its Rules of Procedure,

A.  whereas the High-level Plenary Meeting of the 60th Session of the General Assembly (the 2005 World Summit) took place on 14-16 September 2005 in New York,

B.  whereas EU Member States must be at the forefront of efforts to secure universal participation in multilateral conventions,

C.  whereas an enhanced and increased partnership between the UN and the EU is of high importance for the building of a more peaceful, prosperous, and just world,

D.  whereas the UN has committed itself to promoting and strengthening its effectiveness through the implementation of its decisions and resolutions,

E.  whereas the European Council has taken a favourable position regarding the need to reform the main UN bodies, including the General Assembly, ECOSOC and the Security Council, in order to address challenges and threats ranging from poverty, infectious diseases, environmental damage and civil violence to terrorism, weapons of mass destruction and nuclear non-proliferation,

1.  Agrees that the agreements reached regarding a range of global challenges in the areas of peace and security, development and human rights are a welcome development;

2.  Expresses, however, its disappointment that the World Summit did not fully reach the expected compromises and agreements regarding UN reform in order to improve the representativeness, transparency and efficiency of the system;

3.  Believes that it remains of fundamental importance to achieve more transparency in the activities of the Secretariat;

4.  Is disappointed that the discussion on reform of the Security Council was dropped from the Summit agenda; stresses the need to change the composition of the Security Council in a way that takes into account the changed state of the international system, since the present composition of the Security Council does not correspond to the new situation in the world;

5.  Welcomes the decision to establish a UN Human Rights Council during the coming years, in the interests of a more effective promotion of all human rights and fundamental freedoms;

6.  Stresses that open, transparent and inclusive negotiations on the composition, mandate and working methods of the UN Human Rights Council should be launched as soon as possible in order to ensure that it attains the greatest democratic legitimacy and political authority; membership of the new Council should be limited to countries with good human rights records;

7.  Stresses that a comprehensive convention on terrorism, based on a clear and agreed definition and respecting human rights and democratic freedoms, is still vitally needed;

8.  Welcomes the decisions on setting up a new institution - the Peacebuilding Commission - since it is an international responsibility to protect people from genocide, war crimes and ethnic cleansing;

9.  Welcomes the intention of the Summit participants to foster progress towards the existing Millennium Development Goals by 2015; stresses, however, that regrettably agreement on setting EU spending on development aid at 0.7% of GDP was not reached;

10.  Deeply regrets the failure to reach agreement on disarmament and non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, since the EU is serious about constructing a genuinely multilateral approach to tackling the problem of WMD proliferation, and considers it highly important to build an effective, efficient and equitable system that reduces and progressively eliminates nuclear threats;

11.  Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council and Commission, the Governments and Parliaments of the EU Member States, the UN Secretary-General, the President of the UN Security Council, the President of the UN General Assembly, the President of the UN ECOSOC, and the Members of the High-level Panel for UN Reform, as well as to the US Congress, the Interparliamentary Union and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.
