His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani participated in the high-level meeting to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations via videoconference on Monday. Here are the highlights from the speech.

The repercussions of the COVID- 19 pandemic remind everyone that the Earth and its peoples are only one family, His Highness the Amir of the State of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani said.

H.H. the Amir said that one of the most dangerous challenges that counters the international community is a collective response to the threat of epidemics.

He also said that the establishment of the United Nations represents great hope for humanity after the horrors of World War II. “We are on the threshold of the third decade of the current century, and despite the estimated efforts, the world is facing unprecedented challenges, foremost of which is the exacerbation of regional and international trouble spots and problems of disarmament, terrorism, the environment and sustainable development.”, he added.

The United Nations has been based on a common understanding of human rights and its dignity, and it has made great strides in achieving the goals agreed upon by the international community, he said. “The founding of the United Nations represented a great hope for mankind after the horrors of the Second World War, and to draw conclusions from it and from the absence of global framing between countries, which does not accept wars to settle disputes and agreed and binding principles that allow collective response to genocide.

H.H. the Amir said, “We affirm the firm position of the State of Qatar in support of the principles, charter and goals of the United Nations, and stress the need to implement the political declaration adopted today and to enhance pluralism and diplomacy. Respecting the sovereignty of states and activating the role of women and youth in all fields.”
