Greek President Pavlopoulos: 'UN's Role in Dealing With Crises Is Crucial'

Prokopis PavlopoulosGreece will continue to participate constructively in the work of the UN and particularly in the processes for further democratization upgrading its role with a view to strengthen its ability to respect the international law and to pursue the vision of its founders for a peaceful and just world, Greek President of Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos said on Thursday during his address at an event for the 70-year anniversary since the founding of the UN, held on Thursday at the Acropolis Museum.
“More particularly, to impose the final implementation of the decisions of the General Assembly and the Security Council, since the non-implementation constitutes an institutionally and politically huge default” said Pavlopoulos and gave the example of the illegal Turkish occupation of part of Cyprus, an independent and equal member of the European Union and the Eurozone.
He stressed that the issue at stake is ambitious, as the whole UN project was considered ambitious 70 years ago. “But we owe it to our history and, above all, to the future generations, adding that “today the role of the UN remains extremely important and crucial in dealing with the old crises and the new challenges.”
Pavlopoulos stressed that the goal is always the same: “A world where peace, democracy and prosperity will prevail.” In this context, he said, every anniversary since the founding of the UN is an opportunity to renew our dedication and our commitment to the principles and ideals of the Organization and continue along with the common will to continue, with even more zeal and determination, to struggle for them in order to become even more effective.
