In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Praise be to God, the lord of the worlds. Blessing and peace be upon our prophet Mohammad and his kin companions.

Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
At the outset, I would like to offer my most sincere felicitations on your deserved election to the presidency of the General Assembly and seize the moment to express appreciation for the valuable efforts of our distinguished Secretary-General.
