5 June 2018 - Happy World Environment Day!

Today marks the World Environment Day.

It’s easy to #BeatPlasticPollution – which is the theme for this year’s World Environment Day.  Here are some simple tips shared by UN Environment to be part of the movement.

As our Secretary-General, António Guterres said: "On World Environment Day, the message is simple: reject single-use plastic. Refuse what you can’t re-use. Together, we can chart a path to a cleaner, greener world."

اردیبهشت 97 - اظهار نگرانی عمیق دبیرکل سازمان ملل متحد از تصمیم آمریکا برای خروج از برجام

پیرو تصمیم روز سه شنبه ایالات متحده آمریکا برای خروج از توافق هسته ای 2015 با ایران، دبیرکل سازمان ملل متحد گفت وی "عمیقا نگران" این اقدام است و از همه طرف ها دعوت به عمل    می آورد تا این توافق را حفظ نمایند.

بلافاصله پس ازتصمیم ایالات متحد امریکا، آنتونیو گوترش در بیانیه ای که در مقر سازمان ملل متحد در نیویورک صادر شد، گفت اینجانب از اطلاعیه امروز (سه شنبه) ایالات متحده مبنی بر خروج این کشور از برجام و بازگشت تحریم ها، عمیقا نگران هستم.

وی افزود اینجانب همواره تاکید کرده ام که برجام نشان دهنده دستاوردی بزرگ در عدم گسترش سلاح های اتمی و دیپلماسی بوده و به صلح و امنیت بین المللی و منطقه ای کمک کرده است.

گوترش در بیانیه خود تاکید کرد مهم است همه نگرانی ها در مورد اجرای برجام از راه سازوکارهای مندرج در برجام حل و فصل گردد. وی افزود "موضوعاتی که مستقیما به برجام مربوط نیستند باید جدا گانه حل و فصل شوند."

دبیرکل همه شرکای برجام را فراخواند تا به گونه ای کامل پایبند تعهدات مربوطه باشند و سایردولت های عضو سازمان ملل متحد ازاین توافق حمایت نمایند.


9 May 2018 - Statement by the Secretary-General on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)

  • Published in Other

I am deeply concerned by today’s announcement that the United States will be withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and will begin reinstating US sanctions.

I have consistently reiterated that the JCPOA represents a major achievement in nuclear non-proliferation and diplomacy and has contributed to regional and international peace and security.  
It is essential that all concerns regarding the implementation of the Plan be addressed through the mechanisms established in the JCPOA. Issues not directly related to the JCPOA should be addressed without prejudice to preserving the agreement and its accomplishments.
I call on other JCPOA participants to abide fully by their respective commitments under the JCPOA and on all other Member States to support this agreement.


22 April 2018 - Happy International Mother Earth Day!

Mother Earth is a common expression for the planet earth in a number of countries and regions, which reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit.

The Earth and its ecosystems are our home. In order to achieve a just balance among the economic, social, and environmental needs of present and future generations, it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth.

International Mother Earth Day is celebrated to remind each of us that the Earth and its ecosystems provide us with life and sustenance.

This Day also recognizes a collective responsibility, as called for in the 1992 Rio Declaration, to promote harmony with nature and the Earth to achieve a just balance among the economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations of humanity.

International Mother Earth Day provides an opportunity to raise public awareness around the world to the challenges regarding the well-being of the planet and all the life it supports.

During the commemoration of International Mother Earth Day on Monday, the Eighth Interactive Dialogue of the General Assembly on Harmony with Nature will be held on 23 April 2018 in the ECOSOC Chamber. The Interactive Dialogue will provide a platform to discuss sustainable production and consumption patterns in Harmony with Nature, as to ensure that people everywhere have the relevant information and awareness for sustainable development and lifestyles in Harmony with Nature. The Dialogue also aims to inspire citizens and societies to reconsider how to interact with the natural world and to improve the ethical basis of the relationship between humankind and the Earth in the context of sustainable development.

8 Mar 2018 - The UN Resident Coordinator's Statement at National Tree Planting Ceremony

Dr. Najafi, Mayor of Tehran,

Dr. Araghchi, Deputy for Political Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs,


Distinguished Representatives,

Esteemed colleagues,

Ladies and gentlemen,

I bid you all a very good morning.

Today, I bring you greetings from the Unites Nations Family in the Islamic Republic of Iran.  It gives me an immense pleasure to be a part of this tree planting ceremony.

I wish to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone – especially women present in the audience – a very happy International Women’s Day.

Trees are one of earth’s greatest natural resources. 

As you know, trees keep our air supply clean and remove pollution from the atmosphere – improving air quality and human health. 

Trees improve water quality, they help prevent erosion, provide food, and make our landscapes look beautiful.  Trees create shade and provide us with much needed cooling.

Trees are essential elements in helping reduce the effects of climate change.  When properly placed, trees help us save energy.  They also provide vital wildlife habitat. 

In a sense, tress are living treasures. 

But unfortunately, as a result of climate change and other man-made problems we are losing our trees and forests at a rapid rate.  And this loss is creating environmental challenges such as shortage of water.  Deforestation.  Desertification.  Air pollution amongst other challenges. 

As mentioned earlier, these environmental challenges are all man-made, and for every man-made problem there exist a man-made solution. 

We need to recognize the inseparable link between man and nature and to build a sustainable, climate-resilient future for all. 

We must invest in our trees and world's forests, and invest and support those who guard and protect these precious resources.

For these reasons, and more, saving trees and forests are integral part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which came in to effect 1st of January 2016, as well as in the development plan of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

These global goals will guide the decisions of UN member states like Iran during the next twelve years – until 2030.  Many focus on the environment and the need to think and act “green”.

This tree planting ceremony is thus a symbolic event and it portrays the effort and the energy of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran in recognizing the need to be green and the need to promote environmental causes.

The timing of this event – in my opinion – could not be more perfect.  I am referring to Nowruz being just around the corner. 

Celebrating Nowruz means the affirmation of life in harmony with nature, awareness of the inseparable link between constructive labour and natural cycles of renewal and a solicitous and respectful attitude towards natural sources of life. 

I would like to thank the organizers and also wish to take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you – on behalf of the United Nations – joy, peace, prosperity, friendship and harmony with nature.

Happy Nowruz.

Thank you.
