On the occasion of the New Year, it gives me great pleasure to extend my best wishes for good health and happiness to you and your esteemed family. I also wish your people further progress and prosperity.
The advent of the New Year provides an opportunity to ponder, with confidence and optimism, on the sweeping changes that have characterized the year 2012, as well as on the crucial development, security and environmental changes facing our planet, and which have had both positive and negative repercussions on people's lives and on global relations.
I hope the New Year will provide further prospects to fulfill the legitimate aspirations of mankind, particularly with respect to the dawn of a more balanced, equitable and solidarity-based world; a world where human beings are held in great respect, and where security, peace, justice, tolerance and inter-faith, intercultural co-existence prevail.
