7. SOUNDBITE (English) Stephen Par Kuol, Minister for Peacebuilding, South Sudan:
“Today, we are celebrating the birthday of the United Nations, which was born 77 years ago to prevent war, build peace and celebrate cultural diversity of all the people of the world. As a young nation we are facing the problems of celebrating diversity and forging a cohesive and common national identity. And that is why I say the theme of the year is timely and relevant to our challenge in South Sudan.”

STORYLINE
On 24 October 1945, a beacon of hope was created to inspire and act in solidarity towards a single aim: Creating a better world for all peoples. That beacon was the United Nations. Today, in the world’s youngest nation, South Sudan, the women and men of this Organization have come together with the communities they serve to commemorate 77 years since the iconic blue flag first soared in remote skies, enabling people beleaguered by conflict, humanitarian crises and natural disasters recover from the scars of the past and shape a brighter future for themselves.

Eleven years ago, South Sudan became the newest member of the UN. Since then, the UN has stood by this country and its people as an impartial partner for lasting peace, unity and prosperity. Today, as One UN, we recommit to these immortal ideals.
