"I welcome the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States that paves the way for gay and lesbian Americans to have their relationships legally recognized, no matter which part of the country they live in. I have been a strong believer in equality, and in the equal worth and dignity of LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender] 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. I join the LGBT community and its millions of allies in celebrating this historic decision. Thank you."
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
