The international community today marks the International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace. Efforts to address the COVID-19 pandemic underscore the importance of transparent and effective multilateral cooperation in seeking joint responses to the crisis.
Slovenia is a supporter of effective and transparent multilateral cooperation between countries, which is an essential element in the preservation and consolidation of international peace and security. Slovenia's commitment to multilateral cooperation is based on a strong belief that global challenges are best responded to and tackled collectively. Facing the COVID-19 pandemic and its challenges that know no boundaries requires solidarity, multilateral cooperation, transparent information, and joint response.
A responsible member of the international community and an EU member state, Slovenia is striving for an effective and well-functioning role of the United Nations, which is based on the inseparable connection and complementarity of peace and security, including development built on the respect for human rights and international law. All this is reflected in the goals and principles of the UN Charter through Slovenia’s support for the three pillars of the UN - peace and security, development, and human rights.
On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the United Nations, you are invited to join the global debate on the role of international cooperation in the building of our common future as we would like it to be.
