To the ‘Girls in Science’ here today, and around the world, I say: You are the future Nobel Laureates. You will take your due place in finding innovative solutions which will help us implement the SDGs. 
You will be our role models. 
Today only 35% of students in #STEM are women. It is, then not surprising that only 30% of researchers are women. Let’s work together to rectify this imbalance.

The #coronavirus is not a Chinese problem, it is our human problem. We can only solve it through cooperation and solidarity.

Youth engagement is key to secure peace and development. 
Today, I discussed with students in #AddisAbaba their ideas on how to implement the #GlobalGoals ensuring that no one is left behind. 
I was impressed by their scientific projects, musical talents and critical thinking. #UN75

We should always remember the children who are not as privileged.

They also have rights to go to good schools. We should never forget them or leave them behind.

Honoured to meet H.E. Sahle-Work Zewde President of #Ethiopia. We discussed the importance of Development as a tool to achieve peace and prevent conflicts.

We agreed that #UN75 is an important moment to reflect on what was achieved and enhance the efforts to serve the people of the world.

I wish the African Union a successful Summit.
#SilencingTheGuns is a priority for #Africa. 
It entails ending violent conflicts, promoting inclusion & development. 
#UNGA74 will continue to contribute in strengthening the important partnership between the @UN & the #AfricanUnion.

It was a pleasure to take part in a lively discussion at the Institute for Peace and Security Studies at #AddisAbaba University about “silencing the guns.” Silencing the guns is about inclusion, ensuring rights and development.

The @UN #Agenda2030 and the African Union #Agenda2063 on development are effective tools to prevent conflicts.

Silencing the guns is a priority for #Africa and the world, but it cannot happen in the context of poverty, illiteracy, injustice and exclusion.

Pleasure to meet High School students as we kicked off the @UN #BlackHistoryMonth  tours in front of the Ark of Return, in honour of the Victims of the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

It is essential to treat human beings as equal and to respect them for who they are.

It was truly exciting to visit @NYUAbuDhabi and see how vibrant its community of students and teachers is. 
Education is key for the 74th session of the @UN General Assembly and I believe nothing of value can happen outside education.

سعدت بلقاء ريم الهاشمي وزيرة الدولة في #الإمارات لشؤون التعاون الدولي وزيارة موقع #إكسبو2020 المقرر افتتاحه شهر أكتوبر بمشاركة نحو 190 دولة. 
التحضير للإكسبو، الذي يُنظم كل 5 سنوات وهو الأول بالمنطقة، يعد مثالا إيجابيا على الابتكارات والإنجازات التي 
نستطيع تحقيقها عبر العمل المشترك والتعاون. 
تعرفت خلال الزيارة على جهود إنشاء المعرض وأجنحته بشكل صديق للبيئة وعلى دعم الإمارات للدول التي لم تكن لتتمكن من المشاركة في الإكسبو بدون الدعم. 
وفي جولة في الموقع تعرفت أيضا على التحضيرات لجناح #الأمم_المتحدة بصورة مبتكرة لإلقاء الضوء على حياة وتجارب الناس الذين تخدمهم المنظمة كل يوم بمختلف أنحاء العالم، وعلى أهداف التنمية المستدامة.

Linguistic diversity is essential to preserving humanity’s common heritage. With the disappearance of languages, indigenous people lose part of their identity. As we mark the closing of the #IYIL2019, let us recommit ourselves to continue promoting #IndigenousLanguages.

I was impressed by the youth I have met at @hbku in #Qatar. 
If not for the power of youth and their innovation, we would not be able to address today’s challenges with new solutions.

Delighted to interact with students at @HBKU in #Doha 
Global challenges can be addressed effectively through the power of youth, education and innovation.

We must give space for the Youth in our deliberations.

We must facilitate the full participation of those who have been marginalized. 
This includes women, persons with disabilities, the elderly and youth. 
We must ensure equal access to quality education for everyone.
