It's sad, but not surprising, that #COVID19 has triggered an eruption of antisemitism.
There is no vaccine for antisemitism - but our best weapon remains the truth.
The @UN will continue to stand for the truth & against lies, antisemitism & hatred. #HolocaustRemembranceDay
Today we honour the memory of the six million Jews & millions of others who were systematically murdered in the Holocaust.
Our best tribute to Holocaust victims & survivors is to create a world of equality, justice & dignity for all.
The scale of turmoil around the world requires deeper efforts to ease tensions & prevent escalation.
I am grateful to the 39 countries who committed today over $439 million in support of our work toward peacebuilding & conflict prevention through the @UNPeacebuilding Fund.
The world has reached the heartbreaking milestone of 100 million #COVID19 cases, as the virus continues to surge around the globe.
Our world can only get ahead of this pandemic one way — in solidarity.
Now is the time to make sure that no country & no one is left behind.
I was honoured to join Holocaust survivors to mark the 76th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp.
Holocaust denial, distortion & minimization are resurgent.
We can never let down our guard. We must continue to stand against lies, bigotry & hatred.
Humanity has just endured a year of tragedy & crisis that we never want to repeat.
In 2021 we have a unique chance to change course & put the world on track.
The opportunity to end the spiral of destruction is in our hands.
A country’s ability to adapt to & prepare for the increasingly harmful impacts of the climate crisis should not depend on its wealth.
Developing countries must receive the necessary support.
It is a moral, economic & social imperative.
It is heartbreaking to see so many people around the world struggling with mental health issues, and how little we are doing to support them.
Mental health must be a priority in our response to #COVID19, and a component of universal health coverage.
This #EducationDay, I pay tribute to the resilience of students, teachers and families faced with disruptions caused by #COVID19.
As the world continues to battle the pandemic, education must be protected to avert a generational catastrophe.
Today, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons enters into force.
This is a major step toward a world free of nuclear weapons.
I call on all countries to work together to realize this vision, for our common security and collective safety.
Yesterday I congratulated Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on the beginning of their mandates as @POTUS and @VP.
The United States is an indispensable partner of the @UN family. We look forward to strong collaboration as we work to build a future of dignity & opportunity for all.
I strongly condemn the deadly double suicide bombing targeting civilians at a market in Baghdad today.
I appeal to the people of Iraq to reject any attempts to spread fear & violence & call on the Government to ensure that those behind these crimes are brought to justice.
Some countries are procuring #COVID19 vaccines beyond need.
We need countries to commit now to sharing excess doses of vaccines.
This would help vaccinate all health care workers around the world on an urgent basis and protect health systems from collapse.
I warmly welcome @POTUS Joe Biden’s steps for the USA to re-enter the #ParisAgreement, the global roadmap to tackle the climate emergency.
With all countries fully engaged, we have a real opportunity to prevent climate catastrophe & embark on transformative #ClimateAction.
