UN to continue cooperation with Belarus so it achieves sustainable development goals

Belarus is aimed at developing cooperation with the United Nations. The prospects and objectives of such cooperation on October 24 were discussed at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus.

Belarus became the first state in the post-Soviet space to have opened a representative office of the UN on its territory. UN helped Belarus cooperate with many international communities. Including thanks to such support, Belarus has now achieved almost all the goals of the millennium. These include reduction in infant mortality, the fight against various diseases, as well as the expansion of global cooperation.

Sanaka Samarasinha, UN Resident Coordinator, UNDP Resident Representative in the Republic of Belarus:
Belarus ranks 52nd among 180 countries in terms of human development. The gender indicator is also high. I must note the achievements of Belarus in terms of eliminating the consequences of the Chernobyl accident. Your country has shown the best example used by other countries in the world. The UN plans to continue its cooperation with government bodies, the private sector, so that Belarus realizes the goals of sustainable development for the period until 2030.

It was on October 24, exactly 72 years ago, that the UN Charter came into force. On the United Nations Day, Minsk joined the discussion on global goals.
