Celebrations of the United Nations Day

On United Nations Day, we honor this organization and its steadfast dedication to fostering peace, defending human rights, and fostering goodwill among nations and the larger international community. Since its inception, the United Nations has demonstrated that nations with diverse histories but a common goal can work together to bend history in the direction of a freer and more equitable world.

The United Nations member states have encountered formidable obstacles in the last year, including escalating food shortages, the ongoing COVID-19 threat and new infectious disease outbreaks, inflation, and unprecedented heat, floods, and droughts that have threatened lives and livelihoods. The consequences of Russia’s flagrant war and illegal attempts to annex Ukrainian territory have reverberated throughout the world, worsening the food and refugee crises and jeopardizing the very basis of a stable, rules-based international order, of which the United Nations Charter is the cornerstone.

The United Nations must defend the Charter, promote human rights, advance sustainable development, and hold those who break international law accountable amid immense upheaval.

As we enter a new age of unrelenting diplomacy around the globe, the United States is committed to continuing to fortify our ties with UN member states. Through funding mobilization, among other methods, we will assist developing nations in achieving their climate targets and implementing just transitions to renewable energy. We will take the lead in strengthening the World Health Organization, partnering with nations to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease threats, mobilizing resources to support the World Bank’s new Financial Intermediary Fund for Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness, and Response, and strengthening and reforming the WHO.
