Secretary-General's remarks at the briefing on the SG Report on the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration [as delivered]

Mr. President of the General Assembly,
Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen,
The commitment by Member States to the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration crystalized three core truths.
First, that migration is a fact of life, a defining feature of humanity and our world – and above all, with a positive phenomenon enriching societies and economies.
Second, that if poorly managed, migration generates huge challenges, from tragic loss of life, to rights abuses and social tensions.
