UN Chief Wanted ‘More Ambitious’ Rio+20 Document

June 20, 2012

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon wanted a “more ambitious” document on sustainability at the Rio+20 conference, he said in Rio de Janeiro today.

“I hoped we would have had a more ambitious outcome document. The negotiations have been very difficult and very slow because of all these conflicting interests. This is the outcome of a long and very delicate process. This is not the end. This is the beginning of a process,” Ki-moon told reporters.
