... about reforming the UN.
Stressing on the need for fundamental reform of the United Nations to meet new multiple challenges including terrorism, poverty, disease and climate change, Secretary General Kofi Annan has appealed to lawmakers around the world to press their governments to advance the interests of the entire planet.
"The time has long since arrived to look hard at the institutions of the United Nations -- and, if necessary, to make radical reforms," Annan told the 109th Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly in Geneva in a message delivered by Sergei Ordzhonikidze, Director General of the UN office.
"A central challenge is to enhance their authority by making them both open to more voices and more effective in taking action," Annan said.
[sarcasm]Yeah, more power to the UN is just what we need. [/sarcasm]
