I thank the Presidency of the United Kingdom for convening this important debate.

Before I begin, allow me to pay tribute to an outstanding United Nations leader who joins us for the last time as High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mme. Navi Pillay.  I, as Secretary-General, and I believe that these Council members have benefitted from her honest views and unvarnished reports on the terrible human rights abuses we confront in our world.
