United Nations, 27 July 2012 - Ladies and gentlemen, It is an honour to join billions of people around the world in watching the Summer Olympics and Paralympic Games in London.
I am Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations.
The United Nations and the Olympic Movement bring countries together.
We believe in peace.
That is why we proclaim an Olympic Truce.
I call on warring parties everywhere to lay down their weapons during the Games.
One day of peace can lead to a week of peace ... a month of peace ... and eventually an end to war.
The United Nations was founded on this dream.
Every day we work to make peace a reality.
May the torch of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in London unite the world for harmony and peace.
