In all of those scenarios, the illicit trafficking and misuse of small arms is a leading factor. Small arms are cheap, portable, concealable, and abundant – making them the weapon of choice for those wishing to wreak havoc. (...) In this context, let me mention one impressive regional policy on small arms that is gaining traction and which the UN system is committed to support: the African Union’s initiative on ‘Silencing the Guns in Africa by 2020’. The current momentum this initiative has gathered is impressive, including through the recent adoption of Security Council resolution 2457 [Silencing the Guns in Africa]. Building on that dynamic, the United Nations is now coordinating its own entities to contribute substantially to the initiative; my office stands ready to provide technical expertise, guidance and assistance on implementing the aspirations set out in the silencing the guns initiative, in support of the African Union and its member states, together with various entities of the United Nations.

(...) Most have perished not from armed violence but from starvation; but the conditions of starvation have been enforced by guns. The impact of readily-available, cheap and simple weapons is greatest where there is internal conflict and civil war.
