Regram: @antonioguterres.. Regram: @antonioguterres One of my toughest interviews yet: 8-year-old @niouzzplus reporter Héloïse Lejeune from #Belgium has interviewed me on the topic of children and armed conflict. In 2018, more than 12,000 children have been killed or mutilated in a conflict – the highest number since 1996, the year the General Assembly created the post of Special Representative for Children and Armed conflict. I told the #UnitedNations Security Council that it is our fundamental duty as leaders to do everything in our power to protect children, our future, from the chaos and madness of wars that have nothing to do with them. 📷: @belgiummfa #ChildrenNotSoldiers
