Address by H.E. Maithripala Sirisena, President of Sri Lanka at the United Nations General Assembly High-Level Plenary Meeting, to be known as the Nelson Mandela Peace Summit 24 September 2018, New York


On behalf of the people and the government of Sri Lanka, I wish to express my sincere appreciation to the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the General Assembly for organizing the Nelson Mandela Peace Summit.

We speak today of Nelson Mandela, a great humanitarian, a leader who exemplified reconciliation, and a leader who guided humanity towards a nobler path, at a time when the contemporary world lacks such leaders.
