VOInews, Jakarta: In commemoration of the United Nations (UN) Day, the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in collaboration with the United Nations in Indonesia held a commemoration on Tuesday (24/10/2023) in Jakarta.

Taking the theme "Our Common Future: Peace and Prosperity for All", the 2023 UN Day commemoration emphasizes the importance of strengthening the spirit of multilateralism and collaboration, acting Director General of Multilateral Cooperation at the ministry, Tri Purnajaya said in his remarks.


"The main message we want to emphasize is the importance of strengthening the spirit of multilateralism and the spirit of collaboration to realize peace and shared prosperity. It is not only for the current generation but also for future generations," he said.


Purnajaya further said that the commemoration is important in achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This includes some notes, as the achievement of the SDGs is not being as expected.


"2023 has an important meaning because we are halfway towards achieving the target of achieving the sustainable development goals (SDGs) in 2030. However, we also note that progress in achieving the SDGs is still far from what was expected," he said.


According to him, the commemoration is also an important momentum to encourage reform within the UN. In this regard, previously, the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had presented plans for reform within the UN to meet the challenges of changing times.


"This year is also important because discussions on preparations for the Summit of the Future in 2024 will begin next year, which is an important momentum to encourage reform of the UN and the multilateral system as a whole," he said.


Tri Purnajaya also said that the UN Day is a momentum to reflect on the various achievements and challenges of the UN's work in the future. (Andy Romdoni)
