Today, is the United Nations Day which marks the foundation of the organisation 73 years ago.
Today is also an opportunity to celebrate 26 years of UN partnership with the Government and people of Azerbaijan and to recognise its work for the development and prosperity of the country.
Azerbaijan has been a valuable and active member of the United Nations since its independence and we count on its continuing support for a better and stronger UN.
The UN will continue to support Azerbaijan’s commitment to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The SDG Forum that will take place tomorrow is a solid proof of our partnership and joint work in advancing the sustainable development agenda in the country.
Please join me in celebrating the value, mandate and work of the UN in Azerbaijan and around the world.
The UN needs us and we all need the UN!
Happy UN Day!
