47. Message of the Secretary-General to the world Peace Run1

It is my pleasure to greet the organisers and participants in this remarkable event.

Your aim is to foster harmony and peaceful co-operation among nations through increased human contacts. Your essential message is that we, the members of the human family, despite our many differences, have infinitely much more to unite and bond us together. Nothing could be more in consonance with the essential purpose of the United Nations Organisation.

Accordingly, as United Nations Secretary-General, I wish you every success in this endeavour, for you are all ambassadors in the cause of peace.

—- Javier Pérez de Cuéllar
