Ms. Pauline Tamesis, Resident Coordinator of the United Nations in Cambodia, has expressed her sincere congratulations to Cambodia for being elected to high-level organs of the United Nations, according to a press release of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

On behalf of the United Nations in Cambodia, I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to you: First, for Cambodia's election as a vice-president of the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly, and second, for its role as member of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) for a one-year term starting in 2019, Ms. Tamesis wrote in her letter of June 19, 2018, addressed to Cambodian Senior Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation H.E. Prak Sokhonn.

We consider these two occasions as important opportunities to demonstrate the Royal Government's leadership, commitment and efforts to achieve Cambodia's national development priorities and to realise the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), she continued.

Ms. Pauline Tamesis also took this opportunity to renew the commitment of the United Nations in Cambodia to support the Royal Government, all relevant stakeholders and Cambodian people in realising sustainable peace and development for all.

It should be noted that Cambodia was elected as a vice president of the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly on June 5, 2018 and as a member of ECOSOC on June 13, 2018 with the supporting votes 183 out of 188.
