STORYLINE:

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon presided over an opening ceremony today (18 Feb) in front of the Meditation Room at UN Headquarters, where he wrote a tribute to former Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali in the Book of Condolences and then invited other dignitaries and guests to sign as well.

UN flags in all duty stations will be flown at half-mast today in the late Secretary-General Boutros-Ghali’s honour.

Also today, the 193-member United Nations General Assembly honoured the memory of the former Secretary-General, who passed away on Tuesday at the age of 93, recalling his legacy in helping the world body find its footing in a new global landscape during the tumultuous early 1990s.

During Boutros-Ghali’s time in office, peacekeeping helped Cambodia, El Salvador, Mozambique and other countries emerge from conflict. At the same time, engagements in the Balkans, Somalia and Rwanda highlighted the gap between the needs of a given situation and the material support and political unity required from the Member States, in particular the Security Council.
