[bilingual, as delivered]
Thank you for this chance to update you on our response to the Ebola outbreak.
I bring a message of caution: The world has come together to address this outbreak but our investments and sacrifices could be lost unless we complete the job.
President Kutesa has shown wise leadership, and I thank him for his strong commitment and leadership.
I am also pleased to welcome Mr. Peter Graaff, my new Acting Special Representative of the UN Mission, UNMEER, who was critical in Liberia’s progress as the Ebola Crisis Manager.
