From António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations

I extend my warmest greetings on the occasion of Independence Day.

The United Nations joins in celebrating with the people of the Republic of Azerbaijan on this special day.

This is a moment to remember the importance of advancing the Sustainable Development Goals, tackling the climate crisis, and expanding opportunity and hope for all.

Now is the time for solidarity and shared solutions to help deliver peace, sustainable development and human rights for all.

As we recognize this important day, let us pledge to build a better future for the people of the Republic of Azerbaijan and all those around the world.

Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
