On the occasion of the 70th foundation year of the United Nations, let me join the people of all nations to recognize how much this invaluable Organization contributes to world peace and poverty eradication which remain to be the common core of most humanitarian organizations including We Care for Humanity. This gives us an opportunity to celebrate peace over war and to recognize human triumphs over conflicts and adversities. It is also a perfect time to reflect on what more we can do to realize our collective vision for a better world and peace for all nations.
As the world’s challenges and concerns continue to rise each day, as enshrined in the UN Charter, we are comforted that there is the United Nations founded by our principled and visionary forefathers to maintain international peace and security, and to that end, to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace.
In addition, United Nations exists to develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace, to achieve international co-operation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character, and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion; and to be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations in the attainment of these common ends.
As the President and Founder of We Care for Humanity, let me take this opportunity to wish the United Nations for continuously showing us what collective actions and unity can do. When we are united, we can do even more. In a world that is more connected, we must be more united. On the 70th founding anniversary of the United Nations today, let us pledge to live up to our founding ideals and work together for peace, development and human rights.
Finally, let me congratulate Secretary General Banki Moon for leading the entire organization and the men and women who courageously comprise the United Nations as an ever relevant and the highest world humanitarian organization that it is today. Happy 70th Birthday United Nations!
