26/06/2020- HR/VP Borrell congratulations on the 75th anniversary of the United Nations, and the EU’s commitment to the UN system and multilateralism (on the occasion of the UN Charter signature in San Francisco in 1945).

At the Paris climate conference in December 2015, 195 countries agreed to the world's first universal action plan to tackle climate change by limiting global warming to ‘well below 2°C’. This historic achievement was just the beginning – now every country must turn their promises into action.
