Your Excellency, President of the Board,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am truly grateful for the opportunity to meet with you today - a day we mourn those lost to the earthquake in the border between Iran and Iraq.
Our common imperative, in these times of increasing global challenges, is to remain focused on human lives. Secretary-General Guterres and I continue to look at our constituency of 7.6 billion people with a commitment to leave no one behind.
