The United Nations (UN) General Assembly adopted a resolution that called for greater participation in the Kimberley Process (KP) to prevent conflict diamonds from entering the mainstream market.

The declaration emphasizes the need to stop trafficked diamonds from financing rebel movements and military activities, the UN said. It also recognizes how international efforts have played a role in settling armed struggles in Angola, the Ivory Coast, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Members of the assembly backed the resolution without a vote, the UN reported.

“The assembly called upon review-process participants to continue to articulate and improve rules and procedures to further enhance the scheme’s effectiveness,” the UN added.
