Chief calls for "more agile and accountable" UN

Tehran, Oct 23, IRNA – United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in his message on United Nations Day, 24 October 2019, said the United Nations is becoming ever more agile and accountable.

The full text of the message a copy of which was obtained by IRNA through the United Nations Information Center (UNIC) in the Iranian capital reads:

United Nations Day highlights the enduring ideals of the Charter, which entered into force on this date 74 years ago.

Amid stormy global seas, the Charter remains our shared moral anchor.

At this time of turbo-charged change, the United Nations remains focused on the real problems of real people.

We are working for a fair globalization and bold climate action.

We are pushing for human rights and gender equality -- and saying “no” to hatred of any kind.

And we are striving to maintain peace – while bringing life-saving aid to millions caught up in armed conflict.

The United Nations itself is becoming ever more agile and accountable as we enhance support to countries.

Next year marks the Organization’s 75th anniversary.  This milestone is a critical moment to shape our future, together.

I invite you to join the conversation.

Together, let us advance the well-being of “we the peoples”.
