Iam pleased to share with you some of the milestones we achieved since september2016. I am proud to note that the g7+ group together with the Peacebuilding commission (PBC) organised a successful side event on sustaining peace at the 71st Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). I want to personally the Kenya Government, in their capacity as former Chair of the PBC for the collaboration in this event. We hope to continue similar collaboration with South Korea , new Chair of PBC in the upcoming UNGA.
I congratulate the people of Cote d’Ivoire, Haiti and Liberia for their remarkable progress as they stand ready to say goodbye to their UN peacekeeping Mission.
