DEAR COLLEAGUES AND FRIENDS,
I take this opportunity to sincerely thank you colleagues and member states for the support and the voting in which you elected Kenya on 17 June 2020, to be a non-permanent (elected) member of the United Nations Security Council for the period 2021-2022. I have been overwhelmed by the expressions of support for this great honour you have accorded me and my country. We, therefore, accept this position with humility and promise to work with you in pushing the common agenda at the UNSC and priorities we had outlined.
Since joining the United Nations on 16th December 1964, Kenya has consistently been a strong advocate that is anchored in multilateralism.
