Today on #UNDay, we celebrate the anniversary of the UN Charter on 24 October 1945 Ireland joined the UN in 1955 and the values in the UN Charter are at the heart of Ireland's foreign policy. These values now guide our membership of the UN Security Council 🇮🇪🇺🇳 #IrelandUNSC

On 24 October 1945, the UN Charter entered into force - as the SG says 'a vehicle of hope for a world emerging from the shadow of catastrophic conflict'. That's why today is UN day 🇺🇳. 76 years on, it is a day to reflect on the principles and purposes of United Nations.
76 years ago, the United Nations was created as a vehicle of hope for a world emerging from the shadow of catastrophic conflict. Today, the women & men of the @UN carry this hope forward around the globe. We will never give up making this world better for everyone, everywhere.

.@UN & NGOs are making every effort to continue delivering assistance in Tigray, Amhara and Afar. I reiterate our grave concern for civilians. All parties to the conflict must respect international humanitarian law.

Ireland was grateful to hear from #AfghanWomen again today with @giwps & UN member states. As said by @FawziaKoofi77, Afghan women are frequently talked about, but yet so rarely listened to. Space must be given to Afghan women.🇮🇪will continue use our seat on the #UNSC to do so.

In the meeting with @irishmissionun ,we emphasized on the need to look at the situation of women in Afghanistan as a matter of country’s security. Geo-politics in the region should not result in marginalization of women.
