Since the end of World War II, the United Nations has provided a forum for all countries to come together around the same rules and norms to help advance development and security; bolster ties between member states; and conquer disease, hunger, and poverty.

Even as we recognize the significance of the progress that has been made, we know that grave challenges to our common security and principles risk pulling us back to a more disordered world.

Inherent in the idea of the United Nations is the notion that the peoples of the world are bound by more than geography—that we all belong to a community that is capable of working together to protect our security, our environment, and our health; that is committed to ensuring the dignity and rights of people around the world are safeguarded; and that is dedicated to preserving the cultural and natural treasures of the earth. As we commemorate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, let us resolve to forge a future of greater peace and cooperation.

                Proclamation 9353 of October 22, 2015

                
United Nations Day, 2015

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Seventy years after a world ravaged by war and 
                injustice came together to chart the course for a 
                future defined by common ideals, we reflect on the 
                progress made and the work that remains to fully 
                realize the vision set out in the United Nations 
                Charter. Across our increasingly interconnected globe, 
                the principles embodied in that founding document--and 
                in the international system built over decades--are 
                more essential than ever. As we celebrate the central 
                role the United Nations plays in resolving conflict, 
                providing humanitarian assistance, and spurring 
                sustainable development, we reaffirm our commitment to 
                pursuing a more just and peaceful world for generations 
                to come.

                Since the end of World War II, the United Nations has 
                provided a forum for all countries to come together 
                around the same rules and norms to help advance 
                development and security; bolster ties between member 
                states; and conquer disease, hunger, and poverty. 
                During this time, we have seen great advances in health 
                and education, the emergence of a global economy 
                connecting every region of the globe through 
                groundbreaking developments in commerce and technology, 
                and the rise of more democratic governments. Even as we 
                recognize the significance of the progress that has 
                been made, we know that grave challenges to our common 
                security and principles risk pulling us back to a more 
                disordered world. In meeting those threats, we must 
                summon the spirit of unity and cooperation at the heart 
                of the United Nations Charter--signed in 1945 by 51 
                countries--and rededicate ourselves in support of the 
                United Nations.

                Inherent in the idea of the United Nations is the 
                notion that the peoples of the world are bound by more 
                than geography--that we all belong to a community that 
                is capable of working together to protect our security, 
                our environment, and our health; that is committed to 
                ensuring the dignity and rights of people around the 
                world are safeguarded; and that is dedicated to 
                preserving the cultural and natural treasures of the 
                earth. As we commemorate the 70th anniversary of the 
                founding of the United Nations, let us resolve to forge 
                a future of greater peace and cooperation. With 
                enduring effort and dedication to make real the ideals 
                that guide us, continued progress can remain within our 
                reach.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim October 24, 2015, as 
                United Nations Day. I urge the Governors of the 50 
                States, and the officials of all other areas under the 
                flag of the United States, to observe United Nations 
                Day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                twenty-second day of October, in the year of our Lord 
                two thousand fifteen, and of the Independence of the 
                United States of America the two hundred and fortieth.
