Opening remarks at press encounter with Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway

Thank you very much Prime Minister.

It’s always a pleasure to come to Norway. Norway is a strong pillar of multilateralism and a strong defender of the rules-based international order.

Comments of the UN Secretary-General to the 44th G7 Summit

Excellencies,
 
I welcome your decision to bring a focus on oceans.
 
The facts are clear.  Our oceans are a mess.
 
Some 8 million tons of plastic waste enter the oceans each year.  Unless we change course, it could outweigh all the fish in the oceans by 2050.
 
Plastic waste is now found in the most remote areas of the planet.  It kills marine life and is doing major harm to communities that depend on fishing and tourism.
 
One mass of plastic in the Pacific is now bigger than France.
