Expression of thanks to the retiring President
As this is the first open meeting of the Security Council for the month of July, I should like to take the opportunity to pay a warm tribute, on behalf of the Council, to His Excellency Mr. Mikhail Wehbe, Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations, for his excellent service as President of the Council for the month of July 2002. I am sure I speak for all members of the Council in expressing deep appreciation to Ambassador Wehbe for the great skill with which he conducted the Council’s business last month. Thank you, Sir.
