UN SecGen Lauds US SupCt Ruling

"The Secretary-General welcomes the decision of the Supreme Court that paves the way for gay and lesbian Americans to have their relationships legally recognized, no matter what part of the country they live in. In an interview just now, he called it a great step forward for human rights. He is a strong believer in equality and in the equal worth and dignity of LGBTQ people. Denying couples legal recognition of their relationship opens the door to widespread discrimination. This ruling will help close that door and marks a great step forward for human rights in the United States. He joins the LGBTQ community and its millions of allies in celebrating this historic decision."

From the daily briefing by Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesman for United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, June 26, 2015.
