    Message on International Delegates Day

    25 April 2020

    We mark this first observance of International Delegates Day at a time when international cooperation has never been more important.

    The COVID-19 pandemic demands united responses from all, without stigma and with a particular focus on the most vulnerable. 

    The delegates who represent their country at the United Nations are rising to the challenge, adopting new ways of working while building on a strong tradition of dialogue and collaboration.

    I look forward to continuing our partnership as we strive to save lives, reduce human suffering and build a more peaceful, sustainable and equitable world for all.
