“From feeding over 104 million people in over 80 countries every year, to assisting millions of refugees and protecting women and children, to fighting poverty, HIV and AIDS and to restoring calm through peacekeeping initiatives, the UN has undoubtedly made a difference in the lives of global citizens.”

“Peace and prosperity cannot be achieved when women and girls are marginalized and not given the opportunity to contribute to development. The role of women and other disadvantaged sectors of our communities in advancing the global development agenda must be further enhanced.”

“While the Palestinian People’s plight continues to worsen, the hope for the resolution of the crises in Syria and Iraq continues to diminish. We cannot remain indifferent to the suffering of these innocent people. […] A two state solution, with Palestine and Israel living side by side in peace and harmony, remains the only viable option for settlement of the Palestine Question. Attainment of peace is a process that requires engagement, accommodation and genuineness. Peace cannot be attained by war or oppression.”
