This is my second trip to Bangladesh as Secretary-General.
The UN has 193 Member States. Some I have not visited even once.
So you might wonder why I wanted to visit.
Partly, I have to admit, I love ilish mach,the national fish dish in Bangladesh. You must have already tasted it.
But mostly I am here to meet with you.
You and the women and children of Bangladesh, the soldiers and the students, the leaders in government and the people in the villages.
Yesterday, I visited a peacekeeping training centre.
