The United States strongly supports the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 7 to “ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.” This was demonstrated by our recent high-level participation in the High Level Dialogue on Energy hosted by Sustainable Energy for All, at which Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry presented the U.S. Energy Compact.

We are pleased to join consensus on this resolution. Regarding references to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, and the New Urban Agenda, we refer you to our general statement delivered on November 18. Thank you.
