Prime Minister's message

Ranil Wickramasinghe

Prime Minister

As the UN marks its 70th anniversary this year, its membership must take stock of the achievements of the organization and deliberate meaningfully on collective approaches to adopt, to meet current and emerging challenges.

Sri Lanka takes pride in her 60 year partnership with the United Nations and remains committed to cooperate with the UN and contribute to its work in all fields.

As the Millennium Development Goals give way to the Sustainable Development Goals this year, Sri Lanka looks forward to furthering her own journey towards peace, prosperity, reconciliation and sustainable development for her peoples in line with these targets and in partnership with the international community including the UN.
