During the discussion, the UN secretary general applauded Seychelles’ leadership role in this challenging task, and reiterated the UN’s continuing support and commitment.

In addition, Mr Ki-Moon praised Seychelles for its various achievements, notably the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and expressed his desire to visit Seychelles, which he described as “a very beautiful, interesting country with hardworking people”.
