Liberia is today joining the rest of the world to celebrate United Nations Day.

United Nations Day is celebrated on October 24 every year by member states, marking the official establishment of the UN in 1945.

A symbol of hope for global unity

United Nations Day, on 24 October, marks the anniversary of the entry into force in 1945 of the UN Charter. With the ratification of this founding document by the majority of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, the United Nations officially came into being.

According to Presidential Press Secretary—Isaac Solo Kelgbeh, President George Weah will attend the ceremony here in Monrovia.

He said the President will use the occasion to rally world leaders for the maintenance of peace and stability and address climate change.

“The President will be calling on world leaders, knowing what is happening around the world today, he will be calling for more actions in terms of bringing peace to the world,” he said.

Also during his speech, the Press Secretary asserted that Weah will call for an end to the Russian invasion of Ukraine among others.

“…to stop the carnage that is raging in Urine and other parts of the world and also he will be making mention of global actions toward climate,” he asserted.

Building Back Together for Peace and Prosperity

According to the UN, there is no other global organization with the legitimacy, convening power, and normative impact of the United Nations. No other global organization gives hope to so many people for a better world and can deliver the future we want. Today, the urgency for all countries to come together, to fulfill the promise of the nations united, has rarely been greater.

UN Day, celebrated every year, offers the opportunity to amplify our common agenda and reaffirm the purposes and principles of the UN Charter that have guided us for the past 77 years.

Secretary General’s message 2022

The United Nations is the product of hope.

The hope — and resolve — following the Second World War to move beyond global conflict to global cooperation.

Today, our organization is being tested like never before.

But the United Nations was made for moments like this.

Now, more than ever, we need to bring to life the values and principles of the UN Charter in every corner of the world.

By giving peace a chance and ending conflicts that jeopardize lives, futures, and global progress.

By working to end extreme poverty, reduce inequalities, and rescue Sustainable Development Goals.

By safeguarding our planet, including by breaking our addiction to fossil fuels and kickstarting the renewable energy revolution.

And by finally balancing the scales of opportunity and freedom for women and girls and ensuring human rights for all.

As we mark UN Day, let us renew our hope and conviction in what humanity can achieve when we work as one, in global solidarity.
