of Mr. Zahid for a new four-year term (2009-2012), during
elections to be held in New York in September 2008, during
the next session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Current Ambassador of His Majesty the King in Thailand since
2003, Mr. Zahid, whose curriculum vitae is enclosed, was also

Vice Chairman of the Fifth Administrative and Financial
Committee during the 47th session of the United Nations

In view of the excellent relations of friendship and
cooperation existing between our two countries, the Moroccan
Government would particularly appreciate the support that
your Government could bring to this candidacy.

Complimentary closing.
