Intervention by H.E. Ambassador Rabab Fatima at the Asia Pacific Group monthly meeting held on 20 December 2019 at 1500 hrs in Conference Room 12, UNHQs
Thank you, Madam Chair,
Excellencies, Dear Colleagues,
It gives me great pleasure to join the Asia Pacific Group’s monthly meeting- my first meeting of the group- since my arrival three weeks back. 20-something years back, I was an active member of the group at the expert’s level, and greatly treasured the network of friends and allies in the group. I look forward to renewing that friendship all over again with you all.
I thank you all for your warm words of welcome.
Madam Chair, allow me to extend my delegation’s sincere thanks and felicitations to you and your delegation for the excellent manner you have been guiding our activities this month. I also wish to thank the Permanent Representative and delegation of Yemen for leading our group so ably in the month of November.
Bangladesh deeply values the solidarity and understanding that so happily exist in our Group, on issues of mutual interest. I wish to assure my colleagues in the Group that I look forward to working closely with you all in taking forward our good work.
I wish you all happy holidays and the very best for the New Year.
I thank you, Madam Chair.
