Eradicating poverty is still a "number one" priority for the United Nations in 2015 and beyond, the UN deputy chief has stressed.

Fifteen years ago, the UN announced a global plan to halve extreme poverty and hunger also known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

As the world leaders move to adopt a new set of goals, Jan Eliasson has urged them to deliver on the promises made in 2000.

Mr Eliasson begins by explaining to Priscilla Lecomte what he means by that.
