The UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, is in Bahrain today for talks on disaster prevention. We went along to the opening ceremony, where His Highness the King Sheikh Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa, and the UN SG gave introductory speeches to an audience including the Prime Minister, royalty and senior UN/Diplomatic representatives.
Coming from 4 years at the United Nations, it was indeed an enjoyable 'flashback moment'.
'Keeing it real': The SG in El Fasher, Darfur, Sudan
(indeed, we can hold press conferences ANYWHERE).
