Ban welcomes UN Assembly's plan

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has welcomed the move as a major step that firmly puts the world “on the path to a more prosperous, just and sustainable world for this and future generations.”

General Assembly President Sam Kutesa said today’s action “will further demonstrate our collective commitment towards eradicating poverty, achieving sustainable development and building a better future for all,” and urged UN Member States to “do whatever it will take to ensure that the Addis Ababa Action Agenda is fully implemented.”
