Message from the Secretary-General of the United Nations (2017)
Our world is facing many challenges.
Conflicts and inequalities that intensify...
Extreme weather events, which multiply and murderous intolerance that is gaining ground...
Our security is threatened, including by nuclear weapons...
But we have the tools and resources to address these challenges. Everything we need, It is the will to do.
The problems of the world have no borders.
And we must overcome our differences if we want to change our future.
After we have given to all peoples the opportunity to enjoy their fundamental human rights and to live in dignity, These same people would be the architects of the building of a peaceful world, sustainable and fair.
On this United Nations day, Let us try, "We peoples of the United Nations" to realize this aspiration.
