Twenty years to the day, 22 May 1992, Tuesday, 22 May 2012 was much cause of celebration for three United Nations Member States: Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, and Slovenia as they commemorated 20 Years of UN Membership. War is now over, three flags stand proud, and guests to the special evening ceremony toasted the success in moving forward to greater peace, economic prosperity, and integration.
Esteemed guests included Ambassadors, members of the press, business community and academic leaders, diaspora, and most prominently the Secretary-General. BiH’s first Ambassador to the UN, Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey and myself were also present with dreams realized on this momentous day.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon saluted the members in the common native language to all three groups: “Cestitam Svima” (Congratulations to all.)
