Señores y señoras, buenas noches.

It is a great pleasure for me to be back in Madrid. I thank the Spanish government and people for their commitment to the ideals of the United Nations.
Through its current membership on the Security Council, Spain is helping the world to address the most urgent issues on the international agenda, as has been explained by Foreign Minister [José Manuel] García-Margallo.
