The United Nations envoy to the United Nations, Nikke Hailey, stressed Monday the importance of supporting the vision of reform of the United Nations, noting that efforts will continue to seek the support of all members of the international organization.
In a speech at the opening of the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly, the US television channel CNN said that 70 out of the 193 UN members have yet to sign the UN reform support document.
“Our task today is not to accept less than a full consensus on the reform agenda.”
The US delegate stressed that the current goal is to convince representatives who have not yet signed the Declaration to join efforts to make the international organization more effective, transparent and responsible.
Hailie also expressed her country’s belief that history can be forged through convergence as a genuine international community for reform, noting the importance of combating traditional and resistance-based ideologies.
“Today is a wonderful day that marks the beginning of the process, not the end … We are always stronger when we speak with one voice,” she said, noting that the future of that international organization deserves the extra effort.
