Chairman Ban spoke on the importance of the United Nations and its goals throughout the years. “UN Charter has three main pillars: maintaining international peace and security, sustainable development and human rights for all, Ban said these can be realized only through the UN, which is the universal organization established by the global community.” He said.
He also noted about the current opinions regarding the United Nations. “I know that there is so much criticism whether the UN has been or is able to cope with so much challenges. But I still believe we can do if there is collective will and firm political will among global leaders and people of the world.” He stated.
“Nobody says the UN is a perfect organization,” Chairman Ban said. He also added that “we can still deliver to many people of the world who are still in need of getting out of poverty, and have a healthy life and have all the children to have quality education.“
He closed his interview stating that he believes the United Nations will continue to help those who are in need for another 75 years, playing a “vitally important role to make this world better for all.”
