As a founding member of the United Nations, Belgium has always approached it as the effective tool for multilateralism in order to respond to the increasing number of challenges. It is a great privilege for me to serve my country and the international community along this line. This I do with conviction, the help of my entire team and in close collaboration with all of my colleagues.
