Thank you for your welcome.
I am honoured to meet with the members of the Dutch parliament today.
This is my sixth visit to the Netherlands as Secretary-General.
Every time I come I am heartened by the Dutch people’s commitment to inclusiveness, diversity, international cooperation and civil liberties.
The contribution of the Netherlands to the work of the United Nations touches on all aspects of the Organization’s work: peace and security, development, human rights and humanitarian assistance.
The Netherlands is a key partner of UN peacekeeping.
