Thank you, Mr. President. In response to the last speaker’s intervention, I want to take this opportunity to thank you, ASG Mueller, and to thank the dedicated and brave team at OCHA and the UN agencies. You and your implementing partners on the ground are saving lives and helping the Syrian people every day while the Syrian government continues to terrorize the Syrian people and cause unimaginable suffering. You have our support, OCHA. Thank you, Mr. President.
