Welcome Message of Permanent Representative/ Ambassador
Warmest greetings from the Permanent Representative and members of the Permanent Mission of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar to the Untied Nations.
The Republic of the Union of Myanmar is a member of the UN since 19th April 1948. A firm believer in multilateralism, Myanmar upholds the UN Charter and the principles of International Law. We underscore the profound importance of friendly relations and peaceful and cooperation among states, under the auspices of the UN in our common efforts for the maintenance of international peace and security, promotion of human rights, and socio-economic development.
Myanmar supports the UN’s leadership in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). The national economic and development policy of the Government of the National league for Democracy is designed to meet many of the SDGs including our top national priority of ending the decades-long conflict in the country and building sustainable Peace throughout the country. It also comprehensively includes other priorities such as alleviating poverty, preventing communicable diseases, enhancing agriculture, education and infrastructure and addressing the climate change.
As a contribution to global peace, Myanmar joins the UN in advocating a world free of nuclear weapons. Since 1994, Myanmar has been tabling annual resolution on nuclear disarmament which has been adopted by the General Assembly every year.
Within the UN framework, Myanmar affirms its commitment to maintain and protect its national sovereignty and integrity and also the interests of all its citizens.
I hope this website will provide useful information to the visitors on the Mission’s activities in the international front.
