Tokyo, Japan: 24 July 2014
Ladies and gentlemen,
I first of all want to say a huge thank you because you all worked very hard. I’ve just caught the tail end of some of it when I was talking to you at the reception last night. And I know that some controversial issues were raised and handled in a sensitive way. So my thanks to the representatives of national governments, regional organizations, humanitarian and development partners, affected communities, civil society organizations and the private sector.
