Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world.

Closing Remarks : At Informal Plenary Meeting on the G20 Summit

New York, 25 October 2011


His Excellency Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations,
Ambassador Jean-David Lévitte,
Distinguished delegates,
Ladies and gentlemen,

We have come to the end of this informal meeting. I very much welcome the constructive exchange of views that took place today.

I also intend to convene an informal meeting of the General Assembly after the G20 summit. This will be the occasion for this Assembly to be briefed on the discussions and outcome of the Cannes Summit.

The Secretary-General will be present at this meeting. I have also invited the French Presidency and the incoming Mexican Presidency of the G20 to participate in this meeting.

Finally, I would like to once again thank the His Excellency Mr. Ban Ki-moon and Ambassador Lévitte, for participating in this informal plenary meeting of the General Assembly.
