United Nations press release -------- Following are UN Secretary‑General António Guterres’ remarks on World Children’s Day, in New York today: Thank you, Tony [Lake, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director]. As Secretary‑General, it’s my job to meet with some of the most powerful and important people in the world. Presidents and prime ministers, scientists, military leaders, scholars and academics, captains of industry and business. But none of these people are as important — or as inspiring — as the children I meet, like you. Today, the day we celebrate the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, I want to speak directly to the children in this room, and through them, to all children around the world.
