Mr. President, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is good to see so many countries represented here at such a high level. I know this reflects your understanding that, in these difficult times, the United Nations is as you stated four years ago in
the Millennium Declaration the indispensable common house of the entire human family...

The Graces from Heaven 'The vision of a government of laws and not of men is almost as old as civilisation itself. In a hallway not far from this podium is a replica of the code of laws promulgated by Hammurabi more than three thousand years ago, in the land we now call Iraq.

Much of Hammurabi's code now seems impossibly harsh. But etched into its tablets are principles of justice that have been recognised, if seldom fully implemented, by almost every human society since his time:

Legal protection for the poor.

Restraints on the strong, so that they cannot oppress the weak.

Laws publicly enacted, and known to all.

That code was a landmark in mankind's struggle to build an order where, instead of might making right, right would make might.'
