Minister Josep Borrell's Meetings in New York
19/07/2018

​The Minister of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation, Josep Borrell, travelled to New York on 17 and 18 July to participate in the United Nations ECOSOC High-level Political Forum which monitors the application of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Minister Borrell travelled with the Minister of Ecological Transformation, Teresa Ribera, the High Commissioner for 2030 Agenda, Cristina Gallach, and the State Secretary for International Cooperation and for Ibero-America and the Caribbean, Juan Pablo de Laiglesia and presented the Spanish voluntary national review on the application of the 2030 Agenda.

Likewise, minister Borrell held a meeting with the United Nations Secretary General, António Guterres, where they addressed issues of common interest on the international agenda and the relationships between Spain and the Organisation.   Among other issues, minister Borrell expressed the Spanish support to the reforms of the Secretary General, applicable to the pillar of peace and security, the development system and management of the United Nations, and exchanged information and opinions on certain regional crisis.

Furthermore, the minister met the Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Achim Steiner, and addressed the reform of the United Nations' new development system, as well as the restructuring of the Organization in order to face the challenges posed by the 2030 Agenda.

During minister Josep Borrell's visit to the United Nations, –once again– the Spanish commitment with multilateralism was made evident, in conjunction with the Government's strong will to achieve the complete fulfilment of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. All of the above, with the aim of leaving no one behind, as 2030 Agenda itself mentions.

Finally, minister Josep Borrell met the Andorran Minister of Foreign Affairs, María Ubach, within the framework of the 25th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between both countries. On 3 and 4 October the minister will make an official visit to the Principality of Andorra.
