Thank you very much for this opportunity to address you today.
I thank our Chairman, Ambassador Al-Mouallimi, for his able leadership, and I thank all the members for your wise guidance over the past three years. I was pleased to renew the tenure of all members for another three years. This will ensure continuity going forward.
When I addressed this Board in Jeddah in April 2012, I spoke about how terrorism was ruining lives and deferring hopes for peace.
Since then, we have seen this menace grow even more deadly.
