Your Royal Highness,
Ladies and Gentlemen, all protocol observed,
I thank Their Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania Al Abdullah, as well as the people and government of Jordan, for hosting this timely meeting.
Your Majesty, it has been a pleasure to work with you across the decades, from my time as Prime Minister of Portugal through my years as United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and now in my present capacity.
You have always been a champion of peace.
