Remarks at ceremony marking 25th anniversary of the United Nations Global Service Center

Excellencies,
Colleagues,
 
It is a pleasure to be here with you in Brindisi.
 
I am told that Brindisi has a long history of openness to the world, and that today the City is driven by a spirit called “goodness of heart” in welcoming people in need.
 
So it is appropriate indeed that it is from here that, for the past 25 years, the United Nations Global Service Centre has been supporting some of the most difficult peacekeeping operations and other United Nations endeavours.
