Mr. Chair, Mr. Vice-Chair, Excellencies,
Distinguished Delegates, Colleagues,

It is with sincere appreciation that I welcome Members and Observers of the UNRWA Advisory Commission to this Extraordinary Meeting. I join you from Cairo today, where I will address the Foreign Ministers Summit of the League of Arab States. I thank you for your understanding.

It is the second Extraordinary Meeting since 24 July 2015, and only the third since 2009. Invoking my authority under the Rules of Procedure to convene again was not at all a decision taken lightly.
