Statement of the Director General of the Universal Postal Union on the 75th birthday of the United Nations

For 75 years, the United Nations has striven to deliver peace and security, human rights, the rule of law and development to the world.

Now those pillars are contained in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

When taken together these 17 goals represent humanity’s best hope for a future without war, insecurity, torture, illegality and stagnation.

The goals are the ultimate expression of our search for tolerance and equality.

A desire keenly felt by everyone in every society across the world.

The guardian of these global goals--the champion of this planet--is the United Nations and all those who work so tirelessly for this organization.

At the Universal Postal Union, we are proud to be part of the UN family, and we pledge ourselves to continue working with our 192 member countries and the world’s postal operators to achieve these goals.

On this special day, we wish the United Nations a very happy birthday.
