I am extremely pleased to extend my congratulations to His Excellency Dennis Francis, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, Permanent Representative of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago to the United Nations on his election to the position of President of the 78th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

This is indeed a watershed moment for our country and it fills me with pride that such a distinguished son of the soil will preside over the main policy making organ of the United Nations.

I wish His Excellency every success in his new role.
