[PDF] Welcome Address by Ambassador Anton Thalmann, Deputy State Secretary Federal Department of Foreign Affairs
Author: Ambassador Anton Thalmann, Swiss Govt., Published on: 6 June 2009
It is both a pleasure and an honour for me to open this important conference. The subject of the conference connects with a number of Swiss traditions and, at the same time, it is further evidence of Switzerland’s practicallyoriented foreign policy. A foreign policy that is based on promoting human rights, on respect for international law, on neutrality and mediation.
