Received this from a friend and thought it worth sharing.
Having been sent to United Nations headquarters in New York for work, I was happy to hear that my time here would coincide with the visit of First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. I was even happier when a friend told me that the First Minister would be speaking only a few metres away from the room where my meeting was taking place.
I managed to find a seat in a packed room and was inspired by the First Minister’s description of Scotland’s support to women’s engagement in peace processes; first in Syria, now throughout the Middle East and soon in other parts of the world.
In a lively follow up discussion, she emphasised that this was an example of the positive contribution that Scotland can make to the global community and of the Scottish Government’s commitment to international collaboration based on human rights and dignity for all.
As New York celebrates its Scottish heritage with Scotland Week and Tartan Day, the First Minister has made clear how Scotland has been, and will continue to be, a global force for good that we can all be proud of.
