That is also the mission of the United Nations — to foster dialogue, unity and peace.This is a moment of reflection and learning. I join everyone observing Ramadan to call for peace, mutual respect and solidarity. Following is the text of UN Secretary-General António Guterres’ video message for the beginning of Ramadan, on 22 March: I send my warmest wishes as Muslims around the world begin observing the holy month of Ramadan. Let us take inspiration from this holy month and build a more just and equitable world for all. Ramadan Kareem. In these challenging times, my thoughts are with those facing conflict, displacement and suffering. A time to come together in a spirit of understanding and compassion, bound by our common humanity.
