Quotation / Citation

A multilateralism that aligns efforts towards sustainable development with actions towards sustaining peace, recognizing that at the end of the day, they are one and the same.

And Geneva - with its proud heritage as the birthplace of modern multilateralism; with its unique ecosystem of different actors united by a shared sense of purpose - is the vanguard of putting this vision into practice.

~ Mr. Michael Møller, United Nations Under-Secretary-General, Director-General of the United Nations Office at Geneva.  Remarks made 8 April 2019, "Ensuring Security for All: Geneva Views and Contributions," Council Chamber, Palais des Nations.
