오늘 반가운 메일이 도착해있네요. 반기문 유엔사무총장께서 유엔직원들에게 보내는 격려와, 때로는 좌절, 그리고 내년을 향한 희망에 대한 편지입니다.


21 December 2010

Dear colleagues,

     At the end of a full year, I would like to express my thanks and
admiration for your hard work and dedication and wish you and your family a
joyous holiday season.  As I reflect and take stock, I think of you and
your families, who have done so much to make this an important year for the
United Nations and for the people we serve.

     We can take pride in the year gone by. This month alone, we have seen
important successes. The Cancun climate change conference showed the power
of multilateralism.  Robust preventive diplomacy set the stage for this
week’s inauguration of a new civilian president in Guinea.  And our Central
Emergency Response Fund appeal received a very encouraging response,
putting the UN’s life-saving humanitarian efforts on solid financial
footing.

     We could pick any month and see similar gains: advances on
biodiversity at the Nagoya conference in October; the action plan adopted
at the September summit on the Millennium Development Goals; the creation
of UN Women in July; the strengthening of the International Criminal Court
in June; and in May, the first successful Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty
review conference in a decade.  And day in and day out, we continued to
strengthen our efforts to deliver as one, serve the Member States and tell
the UN story to our constituents – the global public.

     The year brought sorrows.  The earthquake in Haiti was a terrible
tragedy. Yet our response was nothing less than heroic, all the more so for
our own losses. We remember the sacrifices of colleagues elsewhere, as well
— UN peacekeepers, police and humanitarian aid workers. Some were
deliberately targeted; others were victim to the hazards of our work in
remote and often dangerous places. We are the world’s first-responders,
bravely taking on all the risks and hardships that the job requires.

      For all this, you have my greatest thanks and profound respect. As
we look ahead, I invite you to attend a global town hall meeting on 11
January 2011. Please bring your ideas and questions.  I look forward to
talking with you about our plans. Again, thank you again for your
commitment to peace and public service.

     With my best wishes for the New Year,

     BAN Ki-moon
