Churkin said the resolution takes "the first practical step" to establish national anti-piracy courts in Somalia "and a specialized Somali anti-piracy court with international components on the territory of a third state" to fight the impunity that pirates have enjoyed. France's U.N. Ambassador Gerard Araud also called the resolution "a significant and concrete step forward in the fight against piracy off the coast of Somalia." Both Churkin and Araud noted that the specialized anti-piracy courts were first proposed in January by former French culture minister Jack Lang, the secretary-general's special adviser on piracy.
