Statement from the United Nations Country Team in Lesotho

The United Nations is deeply concerned about the situation in Lesotho. We call for immediate calm, restraint from violence, and respect for human rights.

The United Nations urges government officials and all parties to work together constructively to restore trust and find common ground in the pursuit of a peaceful and lasting solution, while respecting rule of law and the democratic process. 

In this effort, there should be no delay. The promotion of a lasting peace is fundamental to efforts to make further development progress in Lesotho.
