UN commemorates former Secretary General Kofi Annan

A ceremony to honor former UN chief Kofi Annan was held at UN headquarters in New York city on Wednesday.

Addressing the ceremony, current Secretary General Antonio Guterres said the UN experienced its most dynamic days under Mr. Annan's administration. At the UN Millennium Summit in 2015 world leaders reached an important agreement on eradicating poverty, infant mortality, and HIV/AIDS. Mr. Guterres said that amid long term conflicts in a divided world, Kofi Annan's peace-making spirit needs to be emulated.
