Director General of the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) Tatiana Valovaya has said the heritage of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his vision for pursuing peace, justice, development, and cooperation still resonates with their common efforts to build a better world.
Valovaya made the remarks at an event organised by the Permanent Mission of Bangladesh in Geneva in collaboration with the UNOG to commemorate the birth centenary of Bangabandhu and 100 years of multilateralism in Geneva.
Speaking as the chief guest on Tuesday, Valovaya referred to Bangabandhu’s historic speech in the United Nations General Assembly in 1974.
She said that the latter’s ideas to build a better future through the united and concerted effort of the people remain relevant in the context of present day’s need for a more inclusive and effective multilateralism. She acclaimed Bangabandhu’s Unfinished Memoirs as an inspiration for a peaceful world.
