MESSAGE ON THE OCCASION OF UNITED NATIONS DAY 2015
On the occasion of United Nations Day, which is celebrated annually on 24th October, I am pleased to bring greetings on behalf of the Government and People of Trinidad and Tobago. Many have not pondered the role the United Nations has played in our daily lives, often conceiving of this Organization as remote and preoccupied with managing international conflict, peace-keeping, and avoiding war. These are all important and necessary aspects of the mission of the United Nations, but the United Nations represents much more than the promotion of order, peace and stability among nations.
