Ban Says He Would Be ‘Deeply Honoured’ to Serve Second Term as UN Secretary-General

NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–6 June 2011.  Ban Ki-moon announced today that he has formally offered to serve a second consecutive term as Secretary-General of the United Nations.

Mr. Ban told a press conference at UN Headquarters in New York that he has sent a letter to the Member States of the General Assembly and Security Council in which he has offered himself for consideration to continue to lead the UN.

“It has been an enormous privilege to lead this great Organization. If supported by the Member States, I would be deeply honoured to serve once more,” he said.

“Throughout my time in office, I have sought to be a bridge-builder – among the Member States, within the United Nations system and among a rich diversity of global partners. Finding common ground is central to delivering results.”

Mr. Ban, who took office as UN chief in January 2007, would serve through the end of 2016 if he wins a second term. He is the eighth man to serve as UN Secretary-General.
