Kofi Annan, the seventh UN Secretary-General, passed away
Saturday, 18 August 2018 22:39

Today, on August 18, the seventh United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Kofi Annan died after a short illness.

MUNRFE highly appreciates the contribution to the development of the work of the United Nations made by this great Ghanian diplomat and expresses its condolences to his family and all those who were close to him.

Kofi Annan served as the Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1997 to 2006. One of his main priorities was the comprehensive reform aimed at revitalizing the work of the UN and making the international system more effective. Besides, under his initiative, the UN Peacekeeping was strengthened in ways that enabled the United Nations to cope with a rapid rise in the number of operations and personnel.

Kofi Annan was a constant advocate of human rights. His “Millennium Report” urged the eradication of poverty, combatting of HIV/AIDS, and protection of the environment. Moreover, he executed contemporary platforms aimed at sustainable development in Africa and the utilization of global capitalism to benefit socioeconomic needs.

Under Mr. Annan’s initiative, in 2005, the Member States established two new intergovernmental bodies: the Peacebuilding Commission and the Human Rights Council. Mr. Annan also played a central role in the creation of the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and the adoption of the UN's first-ever counter-terrorism strategy.
