  • Congratulatory message from H.E. the Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste, Taur Matan Ruak, on the 75th anniversary of the UN

This year the United Nations is celebrating the 75th Anniversary of its existence, an umbrella organization with a global purpose and vocation.

On its anniversary day, I would like to express my sincere congratulations to H.E. The President of the General Assembly, Mr. Volkan Bozkir, and H.E. the Secretary-General, Mr. António Guterres.

We feel sad that in this festive year, the General Assembly is forced to meet under a virtual context imposed by the COVID-19.

We take the opportunity to express our gratitude for the notes made by the Secretary-General of the United Nations encouraging the reinforcement of collective efforts as the only way to overcome the world pandemic.

Fortunately, Timor-Leste with the grace of God has been able to avoid the spreading of COVID-19 and its related casualties.

The Government is now working with commitment and effort towards the mitigation of the negative impacts caused by this disease, therefore preparing a program with a package of economic recovery.

Happy birthday to the Organization of the United Nations! END
