Candidate of Montenegro for the position of UN Secretary General
London: UN Secretary-General candidates' debate - Meet the Candidates
Montenegro’s candidate platform for the position of UN Secretary General
The world has been changing. Some say it is in tumult. Globalization continues and different forms of resistance are in play. The international community has been strong in adopting agendas, but not as strong in delivering them.
It is indeed great honour to address you today and once again confirm the commitment of Montenegro to fully implement the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development
Many believe this is by far the best time in history to be born. Growing life expectancies, ever better medical aid and care for the elderly, IT revolution opening new windows of opportunities. But does the youth globally share this sentiment? People tend to grow pessimistic, and many lie down or wake up in fear.
It is indeed an enormous pleasure and privilege to address you today as we begin with this the new approach in selecting Secretary General of the UN.
Today, together, we are pathfinders.
And I hope it is for the best of our world.
