PRESIDENT, THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD NOW HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BRING INTO BEING A DISARMAMENT CONFERENCE THAT WILL INCLUDE ALL COUNTRIES, AND THAT CAN GIVE A NEW IMPETUS TOWARDS THE ACHIEVEMENT OF A GENERAL AND COMPLETE DISARMAMENT ON A UNIVERSAL BASIS. NO ONE CAN HAVE ANY ILLUSIONS ABOUT THE ENORMOUS COMPLEXITIES OF THE TASK -- THE CONSULTATIONS AND THE PREPARATORY WORK NECESSARY TO ENSURE THE SUCCESS OF THIS WORLD CONFERENCE THEMSELVES REQUIRE DIFFICULT AND DELICATE NEGOTIATIONS. IF, AT ANY TIME THE PREPARATORY COMMITTEE OR THE CONFERENCE ITSELF SHOULD DECIDE THAT THE ASSISTANCE OR THE FACILITIES OF THE SECRETARIAT MIGHT BE HELPFUL TO THEM AND THEIR WORK, I NEED HARDLY STRESS THAT I SHALL ENDEAVOUR TO MEET ANY APPROPRIATE REQUEST TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE SECRETARIAT'S CAPABILITIES. FINALLY, MR. PRESIDENT MAY I EXPRESS MY FERVENT HOPE FOR THE SUCCESSFUL IMPLEMENTATION OF THE RESOLUTION JUST ADOPTED. I SINCERELY TRUST THAT WE ARE NOW LAUNCHED ON A COURSE WHICH WILL CONTRIBUTE IN AN IMPORTANT WAY TO THE ROLE OF ESTABLISHING A PEACEFUL WORLD COMMUNITY AND A UNIVERSAL UNITED NATIONS RESOLVED TO KEEPING PEACE AND JUSTICE FOR ALL PEOPLE. THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT."
