Baku –APA. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon sent a message on the 63rd anniversary of the United Nations, on the UN Day. This is a crucial year in the life of the United Nations, said in the message, UN Baku Office told APA. “Many countries are still not on track to reach the Millennium Development Goals by the target date of 2015. I am also deeply concerned about the impact of the global financial crisis. Never has leadership and partnership been more important. This makes our success at the high-level MDG event in September all the more remarkable. We brought together a broad coalition for change. We generated unprecedented commitment in pledges and partnerships to help the world’s poor. The final tally is not in yet, but the total amount pledged at the MDG event may exceed 16 billion dollars”. The United Nations must deliver results for a safer, healthier, more prosperous world, said the Secretary General. “On this UN Day, I call on all partners and leaders to do their part and keep the promise”.
