The President underlined that the ongoing threat of terrorism, climate change, people in zones of conflict and forcibly displaced persons, children who are unable to go to school, women exposed to violence, and many other serious challenges required that the United Nations should stand strong in its efforts and moral leadership.

According to the President, the newly appointed UN Secretary-General will have the difficult but very important duty of encouraging – continuously and tirelessly – member states to seek compromises and convincing them that common solutions benefit us all. She wished António Guterres continued wisdom, strength and commitment in performing the important and responsible duties of his position.
