Mr. President,

Distinguished Ministers:

I have the honor to deliver this statement on behalf of the Group of 77 and China.

Our planet is living through the most complex times of all.

The situation demands an innovative approach if we wish to protect the interests of current and future generations.

Mr Secretary-General,

Diverse peoples with problems in common - as we have just confirmed in Havana, which was honored to host a summit of leaders and other high representatives of the Group of 77 and China, the most representative, broadly-based and diverse assemblage of nations in the multilateral sphere.
