SECRETARY BLINKEN:  Good afternoon, everyone.  It’s very, very good to be here in Berlin, especially good to be here because we have an important conference bringing together international and Libyan partners in, I think, a moment of opportunity to reinforce the support of the international community for Libya as it moves forward toward elections, sustaining the ceasefire, getting foreign forces out of the country, and continuing the support of the international community.

So we want to take advantage of this moment of opportunity with great thanks to Germany for bringing everyone together, for the work that it’s done continuously to try to help Libya move toward a better and stronger and independent future.

So a lot of good work to be done today.  Great thanks to our hosts here in Germany for making this possible.  Thank you.  Thanks.
