“Despite the ideals that have been set out, the United Nations system can neither prevent conflicts nor end those that are already begun. We all see now that we cannot overcome today’s challenges through structures designed for the needs of the previous century. In order to empower again the United Nations system, we must first reform the Security Council. A Council with a structure that leaves the fate of seven billion people at the mercy of five countries is not fair, and it’s not sustainable either.”

STORYLINE:

In a video message addressed to the High-level meeting to commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversary of the United Nations today (21 Sep), Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said, “despite the ideals that have been set out, the United Nations system can neither prevent conflicts nor end those that are already begun.”

Erdoğan said, “we all see now that we cannot overcome today’s challenges through structures designed for the needs of the previous century. In order to empower again the United Nations system, we must first reform the Security Council.”

The Turkish president stressed that “a Council with a structure that leaves the fate of seven billion people at the mercy of five countries is not fair, and it’s not sustainable either.”

Earlier today, marking the UN’s 75th anniversary, Member States adopted a forward-looking political declaration which will be negotiated through an intergovernmental process on: “The future we want, the United Nations we need: reaffirming our collective commitment to multilateralism.”
