President Yaroslav Mar sent a letter to the UN Secretary-General António Guterres congratulating him on the beginning of his term and wishing a Happy New Year.
On behalf of the Federal Republic of Lostisland and on my own behalf as President, allow me to wish you a Happy New Year and congratulate you on the beginning of your term as the UN Secretary-General!
One couldn’t overestimate the importance of the UN for securing peace and stability throughout the word, as well its uniqueness of being truly the only global political organization; it is therefore truly an honor for me that the first letter I’m sending in the 2017 is addressed to Your Excellency. I wish you all the best in exercising the duties inherent to the high office of the Secretary-General, happiness, and success in all of your endeavors. Once again, congratulations – and Happy New Year!
