Romanian Foreign Affairs Minister Teodor Melescanu stresses in a message on the United Nations Day that Romania has had a significant contribution to the promotion of UN values, to the accomplishment of its universal peace and cooperation vocation, as well as to the strong support of democracy and observance of the fundamental human rights and freedoms.
“Romania remains an active advocate of the UN Charter principles and is determined to get further involved in the organisation’s activities to ensure international peace and security, respect of international law, as well as to attaining a sustainable development. In the current international context, touched by the multiplication and diversification of the risks and threats to international peace and security, the role and responsibilities of the most important global forum amplify, as do expectations of UN member states and their citizens,” the Foreign Affairs Minister says in a release issued on Tuesday by the relevant ministry (MAE).
Romania celebrates on Tuesday 62 years of active participation in the UN. Therefore, Teodor Melescanu reminds that Romania’s will to make a responsible and active contribution to the UN activity is also proven by the support to our country’s candidacy for a non-permanent seat in the UN Security Council at the 2019 elections for the 2020 – 2021 term.
“Under the motto ‘A long-term commitment to Peace, Justice and Development’, Romania is ready and determined to contribute alongside the UN member states, with its expertise and resources, to increasing the organisation’s efficiency and adjustment to the current international environment,” the Romanian chief diplomat adds.
Romania became a UN member on 14 December 1955, MAE also mentions.
