UN - UN Affairs

UN News - Global perspective Human stories | UN Affairs
  1. In 1951, the UN Secretariat opened for business. The slender 39-storey office tower has become the iconic symbol of the United Nations, so we dove into our archives for a look at the world’s meeting place that has grown alongside New York’s ever-changing skyline over the past seven decades.
  2. South African leader Nelson Mandela speaks out about crushing apartheid. US Secretary of State Colin Powell holds up a vial in the UN Security Council. Swedish activist Greta Thunberg asks “How dare you?”
  3. UN Secretary-General António Guterres on Monday appointed an independent panel to conduct an assessment of the UN agency that assists Palestine refugees, UNRWA, following accusations that several staff were involved in the 7 October attacks against Israel.  
  4. An extraterrestrial visitor now lives at UN Headquarters in New York: a precious piece of the Moon. The rock joins a host of other fascinating objects on display, from a machine gun fashioned into a guitar to a semi-curdled bronze statue that survived a nuclear bomb in Japan.
  5. How long was the longest ever statement delivered at the UN General Assembly?
