Happy United Nations Day to all.
I am delighted to welcome all of you to this special 70th anniversary celebration.
We are honoured by the presence of so many talented performers.
I thank the KBS Traditional Music Orchestra, the K-pop duo Davichi, the world-famous Harlem Gospel Choir, and Lang Lang, my very dedicated UN Messenger of Peace.
Their performances can inspire the United Nations family as we ready ourselves for the enormous challenges ahead.
Ladies and gentlemen,
