Statement by Ms. Helen Rits, Second Secretary of the Mission of Estonia to the UN, at the Annual Donor Meeting of the Department of Political Affairs, 30 November 2017


Thank you Mr. Feltman for convening today’s meeting and for this useful briefing.

Estonia values very highly the work the Department of Political Affairs is doing under your able leadership. We strongly share Secretary-General’s vision and focus that prevention. Prevention should not merely be a priority, but the priority for the United Nations. That is why we are very pleased that starting from this year Estonia is among the supporters of DPA.

I am also happy to confirm that Estonia will continue to support the department over the course of the coming years. Exact details of our next contribution are yet to be worked out, but let me assure you, that Estonia is strongly committed to supporting DPA’s valuable work.

Thank you.
