UN’s Ban Congratulates Obama, Sees Lasting Partnership With U.S.

November 07, 2012

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon congratulated President Barack Obama on his re-election and said he looks forward to working with the administration “in the spirit of the enduring partnership” between the U.S. and the UN.

“Many challenges lie ahead, from ending the bloodshed in Syria, to getting the Middle East peace process back on track, to promoting sustainable development and tackling the challenges posed by climate change,” Ban said in an e-mailed statement today. “All will require strong multilateral cooperation” and the UN counts on the “active engagement” of the U.S. on these and other issues.
