With solidarity, unity of purpose and a renewed spirit of dialogue, compromise and reconciliation, we can confront the challenges before us and realize the essential aspiration of our United Nations for peace, prosperity and human rights for all.
Thank you once again for your support to the United Nations over the past three decades. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our ties in the years ahead».
