Mr. Ban Ki-moon
"We at the United Nations want to lead by example and make a truly ‘Inclusive United Nations’. The Accessibility Centre will enable persons with disabilities to participate in the intergovernmental processes, and reinforce the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. "
John W. Ashe
H.E. Ambassador
"The United Nations Charter is based on the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms for all, while the Universal Declaration of Human Rights begins with the words: All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights For this reason disability-inclusive development is not a new idea. As we begin crafting the post 2015 development agenda, we must strive for inclusive social development, equality ad opportunity for all, including persons with disabilities."
Oh Joon
H.E. Ambassador
"I am delighted to welcome you to the United Nations Accessibility Centre. The assistive devices provided by Korea will promote greater inclusiveness for persons with disabilities visiting the UN. This contribution represents Korea’s long-standing commitment to promoting and ensuring the rights of persons with disabilities."
