High-level Meeting to Commemorate the Seventy-fifth Anniversary of the United Nations on 21 September 2020

At the UN75 Commemoration H.E. Cyril Ramaphosa, President of South Africa, said in his statement that 75 years ago, pioneering women and men had united to save successive generations from the scourge of war. The Organization had to remain the foremost tool for international peace, he emphasized, adding that the United Nations system offered the best means for overcoming global challenges. Only through multilateralism could the international community forge common strategies for the advancement of all.  The United Nations had to be fit for purpose, adequately funded and representative in its decision making structures, he said, highlighting the role of regional bodies such as the African Union.  Global peace was not just about a world free of conflict; it was also about a world of inclusive economic growth and shared prosperity.
