The following statement was issued today by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:
The Secretary-General warmly congratulates the Government and people of Mozambique, as they mark 20 years of peace today. He reiterates the United Nations commitment to continue working with Mozambique as it consolidates democracy and strives to achieve social inclusion, women's empowerment and sustainable development.
