The Secretary-General's remarks at Joint Press Conference with President Marcelo Rebelo De Sousa of Portugal and President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya at United Nations Ocean Conference
Dear representatives of the media, welcome.
I am pleased to be in Lisbon to help launch the United Nations Ocean Conference, generously hosted by Kenya and Portugal.
And I feel that very personally today.
Standing here, my mind goes back to the 1998 World Expo with a focus on the ocean that Portugal hosted while I was Prime Minister. And the present Prime Minister was the Minister in charge of organizing the Expo.
Almost a quarter century later, this conference comes at a critical moment.
