Congratulations to Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn for his thorough and comprehensive report regarding world issues, challenges, and paths forward. It reflected his lifetime of experience, depth of knowledge, and appreciation for not only the dynamics at play, but also the players on the world stage. I look forward to studying in more detail his thoughts in the coming days. One point that he made merits emphasis. So, I would extend his remarks to say: “There is no single step that would advance our planet closer to peace and prosperity for all, than the empowerment of all women throughout the world.”
