Practice Relating to Rule 136. Recruitment of Child Soldiers
In July 2006, during a debate in the UN Security Council on children and armed conflict, China stated:
… it is regrettable that, at present, children in more than 30 countries around the world are harmed in various ways by armed conflicts. Some of them are killed in merciless wars, while others are forced into armed conflicts as a means of war, still others are kidnapped or subject to various forms of physical abuse. These children rightfully belong in classrooms, studying and acquiring knowledge. Instead, they have become victims of armed conflicts …
All countries and parties have the obligation to do their utmost to protect children from being harmed in armed conflict … Taking the protection of children as an important aspect of their operations, some United Nations peacekeeping missions have given full consideration to the special needs of children in helping the host countries in their disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programs … China is very much concerned that armed conflict in different regions of the world causes harm to children. We support all efforts made by the United Nations, including the Security Council, in promoting the protection of children in armed conflict. I wish to emphasize the following points in this regard:
Second, when dealing with the issue of “Children and Armed Conflict”, we should always respect and support the role played by the governments of the countries concerned … At present, many national governments in conflict situations have adopted various strategies and plans prohibiting the recruitment of child soldiers and protecting children affected by armed conflict. All these factors have to be considered when carrying out international cooperation in this field.
Lastly, China once again urges parties to all armed conflicts to genuinely discharge their responsibilities to respect and protect the rights of children … The protection of children has always been a focus in the work of the government of China, which has ratified the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the involvement of children in armed conflict as early as in 2002. We call on more countries to accede to the Protocol, and hope that the protocol provisions concerning the age limit for conscription will be observed. China hopes that, with the efforts of all parties, a favourable environment will be created for children all over the world to live and grow and enjoy a bright future.

In November 2006, during a debate in the UN Security Council on children and armed conflict, China stated:
China attaches great importance to the Council’s discussion of the issue and we are against the recruitment and use of child soldiers and other violations of the rights and interests of children in armed conflict. It is our hope that the Council will play a unique role in its consideration of this question.
