It is me thanking you, Antonio [Guterres], for the excellent work you are doing on the field, not only here, but in the many other crisis areas in the world. We need some good news from time to time and indeed in the case of Somalia, we have hopes that next year we could have good developments in the country and political and security conditions for the Somali refugees to go back home.
