UN Day celebrated at the Russian Embassy

On 23 October, the Embassy of the Russian Federation and the United Nations Association UK (UNA-UK) held an event to celebrate the UN Day. The event was a continuation of UNA-UK’s emerging tradition of commemorating the anniversary of the entry into force of the United Nations Charter on 24 October 1945 together with diplomatic missions accredited in London.

The celebration brought together diplomats, politicians and scholars, and featured a keynote address by Mrs Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO, who spoke on the role of multilateralism in today’s world, notably in defending and strengthening universal human values through culture, education and science. Mrs Bokova particularly emphasized the key role of education in attaining the Millennium Development Goals, to which UNESCO is making a proud contribution.

Russian Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko, hosting the event, said: “I am delighted to welcome guests for the UN Day, particularly dear to me, as my whole diplomatic career has been devoted to working with the United Nations. Today, multilateralism, with the United Nations at the heart of the international system, has no alternative. Despite what many skeptics say, over the last twenty years the UN has become more efficient. Human rights, anti-terrorist and peacekeeping activities have flourished. And most importantly, the UN’s unique legitimacy has strengthened”.

Co-host Sir Jeremy Greenstock, UNA-UK Chairman and former UK Ambassador to the UN, said: “This occasion is an important opportunity for the diplomatic community in London to join with policy-makers and civil society in celebrating the UN’s achievements and reflecting on how it can be re-tooled to tackle 21st century challenges. In this era of rapid change, we must ensure that the UN, the only truly global organisation we have, enjoys the support of institutions and individuals alike – not just on UN Day but around the year.”
