Mr. President of the General Assembly,
Mr. President of the Security Council,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am very pleased to be here for this informal discussion to launch the 2010 review of the United Nations Peacebuilding Architecture.
I congratulate the Permanent Representatives of Ireland, Mexico and South Africa – Ambassadors Anderson, Heller, and Sangqu – on their appointment as facilitators for this process.
The 2010 review is an important undertaking.
