Myanmar top leader Senior-General Than Shwe has pledged his country's commitment to work with the international community towards the vision of the United Nations that is a center of harmonizing the actions of nations for attainment of peace, security and prosperity for all.

The remarks of Than Shwe, Chairman of the State Peace and Development Council, in his message on the occasion of the 64th anniversary of the UN Day was carried in Sunday's official newspaper New Light of Myanmar.

Than Shwe reaffirmed the country's support and commitment to the purposes and principles of the UN Charter which he said have proved timeless and universal.

Noting that the world faces complex crisis threatening development and security, Than Shwe stressed the need at this juncture to look to the founding principles of the UN to address the challenges.

The imbalances in global economic, financial and trade environment remains a major impediment for many developing countries, he said, warning that the emerging global issues of climate change, financial and economic crisis, and food and energy crisis threaten to undermine socio-economic progress gained, including the achievements of the Millennium Development Goals.

He called for addressing the challenges that the world is now facing by an integrated approach.

He pointed out that no country can deal with the multitude of global problems alone, saying that they can be effectively resolved only through collective efforts within the most representative international mechanism.

He maintained that Myanmar has great faith in the important role played by the UN in promoting social justice, economic progress and better standard of living of the citizens of the world.
