Madam Chair,

Allow me to begin with congratulations to you Madam Chair, for your leadership of this Committee, including through the guidance given in your opening statement yesterday. I would also like to thank the Under Secretaries-General for DPKO and for DFS for their statements providing detailed overviews of all progress in policies relating to UN peacekeeping operations. All three statements have provided much to consider for our Committee, and I trust that Committee will be able to progress these issues through its work.
