Secretary-General’s remarks at event in Sri Lanka on SDG16: Sustaining Peace – Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals

UNSG1

It is an honour to be here today to talk about the links between peace and sustainable development.

This is my first visit to Sri Lanka since 2009, when I saw great suffering and hardship. Hundreds of thousands of people were displaced and in need of humanitarian aid after the terrible conflict that tore the country apart.

I called for fast reconciliation and action to build peace, in the knowledge that conflict can recur in fragile post-war societies.

Today, the picture is very different. I congratulate the Government and people of Sri Lanka for the progress you have made.&ampampampnbsp There remains much hard work ahead, but you have moved with determination along a new path with great promise for all the country’s people.
