"I am delighted to welcome all colleagues to this invaluable Accessibility Centre, which is a practical resource for persons with disabilities as well as a meaningful demonstration of our commitment to ensuring that they are able to fully contribute to our shared goals of peace, human rights and sustainable development.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is our promise to current and future generations. We will only realize its vision of a life of dignity for all when persons with disabilities can fully engage in the work of the United Nations, both at Headquarters and beyond.
I hope that together, we can ensure that the United Nations does everything possible to optimize the immense potential of persons with disabilities both on our premises and around the world. This will advance us to a better future for all."
