Marcos brings call for unity to UN General Assembly
NEW YORK CITY — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Tuesday (Wednesday Manila time) brought his call for “unity” to the 77th session of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly.
Addressing world leaders at the UN high-level debate, Marcos rallied world leaders to unite as they move and shape the world’s transformation.
“The future beckons and we can embark upon that journey as single nations or as a world in harmony. I say, let the challenges of one people be the challenges for all nations. And in that way the success of one will be a success for us all,” he said in his 20-minute speech.
“The peoples of the world look to their leaders, to us, to make into reality these aspirations for our future. We must not fail them. And if we stand together, we will not fail them. If we stand together, we can only succeed,” the President added.
“Let us dream, let us work for those successes for all our nations, united!” he continued.
Unity was a key message in Marcos’ 2022 presidential campaign.
In his inauguration speech, he projected himself as a unifying president who can transcend the country’s polarized politics.
Be an instrument of unity, Bongbong Marcos urges countrymen
