Remarks at the ceremony for the official inauguration of the United Nations House in Namibia

I thank the Government of the Republic of Namibia for the invitation to officially inaugurate the UN House in Namibia together with His Excellency President Hifikepunye Pohamba.

On behalf of the United Nations, I would like to thank the people and the Government of Namibia for this gift to the United Nations. The UN has a valuable history with the Namibian people. I am pleased to be here today to write another chapter in our cooperation. I am also here to show my personal commitment to strengthening UN engagement with the country.
