President Sakellaropoulou’s Message on UN Day

ATHENS – Global challenges can only be addressed through coordinated action at global level based on International Law, said President Katerina Sakellaropoulou in her message on the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, on Saturday, UN Day.

She emphasized, however, that "much remains to be done, as ongoing challenges, such as hunger, conflict, growing inequality among citizens and nations, climate change, gender inequality and violence, as well as the recent Covid-19 pandemic crisis, all prove that cooperation among states is as important today as it was in 1945."

"The UN's 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, a milestone in the organization's course to date, is the roadmap for achieving these objectives. Its implementation is necessary for our survival, and urgent efforts are required to this purpose," she noted.

UN Day on October 24 marks the anniversary of the UN Charter's entry into force in 1945.
