New York, 18 March 2009 - Deputy Secretary-General's remarks to General Assembly thematic debate on the right to education in emergency, post-crisis and transition situations caused by man-made conflicts and natural disasters
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am pleased to welcome you to this important debate.
AFR/1319 Following is the text of the message of UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan to the Summit meeting of the African Union in Khartoum delivered by Mohamed Mohamed Sahnoun, Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on Africa:
It gives me great pleasure to send my greetings to the Heads of State and Government gathered for this important Summit of the African Union.
I welcome the decision to make "education and culture" the theme of this Summit.
NEW YORK, 4 October - Africa today is afflicted by fewer serious armed conflicts than it was just six years ago, says United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan in an annual report issued today in New York. When he issued his first major report on the causes of conflict in Africa in 1998, there were 14 countries in the midst of war and another 11 were suffering from severe political turbulence. Today, Mr.
The Secretary-General: Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, thank you for coming this morning. I know it is a bit early for some of us, but I am leaving this weekend for a long overseas trip, and I thought I should talk to you and answer your questions before I go.
Good morning, ladies and gentlemen - -- and Happy New Year!
We start the year with anxiety -- anxiety over the prospect of war in Iraq, over nuclear proliferation in the Korean Peninsula, and over what seems like violence without end in the Middle East. Even Côte d'Ivoire, which used to be one of the most stable and prosperous countries in Africa, is now caught in the downward spiral of conflict.
The threat of global terror hangs over all of us. We don't know where or when it will strike next.
And these are only the crises in the headlines!
