INAUGURATION OF THE NEW UNITED NATIONS OFFICES IN PUTRAJAYA

BY THE MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF MALAYSIA,

DATO’ SRI ANIFAH AMAN

 7 FEBRUARY 2018

 

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Malaysia, Dato’ Sri Anifah Aman, inaugurated the new United Nations (UN) offices at Menara PjH, Putrajaya on 7 February 2018.

 

The Government of Malaysia hosted the establishment of the UN regional office in Kuala Lumpur since 1961. There are currently seven (7) UN agencies in Malaysia, namely the World Health Organization; United Nations Children's Fund; United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees; United Nations Development Programme; United Nations Population Fund; World Food Programme and United Nations University.

 

In his remarks, the Foreign Minister applauded the relocation of the UN offices from Kuala Lumpur to the Government's administrative centre, Putrajaya as it will contribute towards enhancing the circle of networking and cooperation between the UN and various Malaysian Government ministries and agencies in Putrajaya.

 

Since joining the UN in September 1957, Malaysia has been an active member in promoting the three founding pillars of the UN system: peace and security, human rights, and development. Malaysia remains committed to working closely and collaborating with the UN offices at all levels to ensure development and progress in all fronts and spheres taking into account our national interest.
