SECRETARY-GENERAL PRESS ENCOUNTER

New York, 10 October 2016

Transcript

Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen.  As you know, I returned last night from a productive trip to some European countries.  This morning I would like to focus on two urgent challenges – the situations in Haiti and Yemen.

First, Haiti.

I wish to express my strong solidarity with the people of Haiti in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. I take this opportunity again to express my deepest condolences and sympathies to the people who have been affected by this Hurricane Matthew.
