TEHRAN, 24 October 2018 (UNIC) – United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in his message on United Nations Day, 24 October 2018, called for upholding dignity for one and all, as united nations.

The full text of his message reads:

United Nations Day marks the birthday of our founding Charter – the landmark document that embodies the hopes, dreams and aspirations of “we the peoples”.

Every day, the women and men of the United Nations work to give practical meaning to that Charter. 

Despite the odds and the obstacles, we never give up. 

Extreme poverty is being reduced but we see inequality growing.

Yet we don’t give up because we know by reducing inequality we increase hope and opportunity and peace around the world.

Climate change is moving faster than we are, but we don’t give up because we know that climate action is the only path. 

Human rights are being violated in so many places.  But we don’t give up because we know respect for human rights and human dignity is a basic condition for peace.

Conflicts are multiplying - people are suffering. But we don’t give up because we know every man, woman and child deserves a life of peace.

On United Nations Day, let us reaffirm our commitment. 

To repair broken trust. 

To heal our planet.

To leave no one behind.

To uphold dignity for one and all, as united nations.
