On Monday 21 September 2020, President Danny Faure joined other world leaders in delivering a statement virtually, at the UN High Level Meeting to Commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations.

“One thing the world has learned these past 75 years, is that governments alone cannot stand up to the global challenges we face.

“COVID – 19 and the increasingly destructive longer-term threat of climate change have only served to emphasise this.”

President Faure further expressed that “these challenges do not stop at borders. Instead, they should unite us with the shared responsibility to adapt, adopt and apply” mutually beneficial approaches when tackling common threats.”
