Professor Camilleri, [Rector, University of Malta], Dr. Borg, [Coordinator, Environmental and Planning Law Unit, Faculty of Laws], Distinguished Guests,
Faculty, Students,Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is a pleasure to join you for this ceremony. Thank you for this warm welcome.
I have been in Malta just a few hours. But even in that short time, I have been able to see the active and wide-ranging engagement of your country in the work of the United Nations.
Your contributions on climate change have been especially notable.
