Myanmar official media Monday hailed the over-six-decade undertakings by the United Nations, saying that the international community today has a better, more prosperous future with peace ahead due to the joint efforts member countries have been making in harmony to surmount the great varieties of crisis and challenges being faced by the world people.

"Indeed, the U.N. is the best forum to tackle global challenges as well as for guaranteeing international peace and security," said the New Light of Myanmar in its editorial.

"Over the decades, the U.N. has successfully maintained international peace and security. Moreover, the U.N. also made advances in the field of development, protection of the environment and promotion of international law," the editorial noted.

"The imbalance in the global economic, financial and trade environment remains a major impediment for many developing countries," it pointed out, warning that the emerging global issues of climate change, financial and economic crisis, food and energy crisis threaten to undermine socio-economic progress gained.

Welcoming the world body's scaled-up humanitarian aid, the editorial said the U.N. has vaccinated 40 percent of the world children, providing food for more than 100 million people and over30 million refugees, adding that it is trying to generate a multinational system that can fulfill requirements of the neediest people.

Myanmar celebrated the 64th anniversary of the U.N. Day in Nay Pyi Taw Sunday, attended by First Secretary of the State Peace and Development Council General Thiha Thura Tin Aung Myint Oo.
