Let me extend my heartfelt greetings to all of you. Thank you, Dr. Limb Thok-Kyu, for your kind invitation to take part in this breakfast in honour of Dr. Cheick Sidi Diarra, Under-Secretary General of United Nations.
Sidi Diarra is a well-known diplomat with a great experience in the field of international
relations, law and development. He has considerably contributed to the
elaborations on the problems of
role of the UN as a world organization of universal legitimacy is growing. It
is in high demand for promotion of a genuinely equal dialogue by all states of
the world, and my country,
New challenges and threats, – those of international terrorism, illegal drug traffic, organized crime, danger of proliferation of WMD and means of their delivery, regional conflicts, demographic problems, global poverty as well as illegal migration and climate change – have global character, and demand an appropriate response from the whole of international community.
