This is the result of a year of hard work by a team that included all of our country's highest representatives, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank in particular President Nataša Pirc Musar, Foreign Minister Tanja Fajon, and all the many colleagues in the diplomatic service who worked industriously and helped us succeed. But our real work has only just begun. Slovenia as a small but confident member of the Security Council, will be able to make a significant contribution in areas where sometimes the big ones give up, and hence we will act as a bridge between different interests. We will be able to really influence global policies and I believe that we will also be able to lend an ear to the small members and their biggest challenges. We will be committed to preserving international peace and security. And we know what climate change means. We will do our utmost to keep this item on the United Nation’s main agenda, because it is climate change that poses the greatest threat to our future, our security and peace in the world."
