On Wednesday, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres congratulated the Islamic world on the advent of the blessed month of Ramadan, calling for using this month to build a “more just and equitable world.”

Guterres said in the congratulatory message, which he posted on his Twitter account: “I send my warmest wishes to Muslims around the world as they welcome the blessed month of Ramadan.”

“I join everyone observing Ramadan in calling for peace, solidarity and mutual respect,” he added.
