Ministry of Defense Implements the Provisions of Resolution 1325



CHISINAU, March 29, 2018 — General State Secretary of the Ministry of Defense, Radu Burduja, and Acting Head of UN Women Moldova, Asya Varbanova, discussed today how the defense institution is implementing the provisions of the National Plan for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 “Women, Peace and Security” for 2018-2021 and the Action plan regarding its implementation at the Center of Military History and Culture.

Radu Burduja specified that the Ministry of Defense conducted a series of activities aimed to reach the objectives set within the Resolution. Among these were the admission at the Military Academy, participation in international peacekeeping operations, and promotion to leadership positions of women.

The General State Secretary added that the institution is available to implement the national plan and will make every effort to advance in this sector in order to ensure equal conditions for women and men.

“Currently, three women who are National Army officers are deployed in international peacekeeping operations. One of them is in Ukraine, while the other two — in the Central African Republic and South Sudan. Our goal is to increase the number of women who are participating in external missions, so we are committed to train them correspondingly”, said Radu Burduja.

The National Plan for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 “Women, Peace and Security” for 2018-2021 and the Action plan regarding its implementation were approved by a Government decision in March, 2018 and aim to eliminate the institutional obstacles or public attitudes hindering the equal participation of men and women in the defense and security sector.

The project was developed by a working group established by Government Directive No. 54-d as of May 29, 2017 under the leadership of the Deputy Prime Minister responsible for reintegration policies and within a vast exercise attended by decision makers from the Ministry of Health, Labor and Social Protection, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration, Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Justice, National Anticorruption Center, Customs Service, Information and Security Service, as well as with the support offered by the Information and Documentation Centre on NATO, Institute for Inclusive Security from Washington DC (USA), UN Women in Moldova, and Swedish Government.

The UN Security Council Resolution 1325 “Women, Peace and Security” was adopted unanimously on October 31, 2000 and is the first international framework-document which addresses the impact of armed conflict on women and recognizes their important role in establishing peace and ensuring security. The Resolution is mandatory for all UN member-states and does not require further ratification.
