His Excellency Xavier Espot Zamora

Statement Summary

XAVIER ESPOT ZAMORA, Head of Government of Andorra, said the world is safer, more stable, and more equitable than at the founding of the United Nations, adding that the Organization is a “temple of dialogue” in which all States can speak and be heard.  Member States must place their trust in the United Nations and provide it the resources to address current and emerging challenges.  Multilateralism and the 2030 Agenda are the ideal framework to tackle global challenges, he said, noting that unresolved hunger and armed conflict will hinder the attainment of sustainable development.  He closed by calling for the establishment of mechanisms that provide young people a platform to act as agents of change.
