SECRETARY-GENERAL ‘DEEPLY REGRETS’ LACK OF CONSENSUS IN BUDGET COMMITTEE

 

ON MANAGEMENT REFORM PROPOSALS

 

The following statement was issued today by the Spokesman for UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan:

The Secretary-General deeply regrets that Member States were unable to reach consensus in the Fifth Committee deliberations on his management reform proposals.  He urges Member States to seek to work together to rebuild the spirit of mutual trust that underpins consensus and is essential to the smooth functioning of the United Nations.  The Secretary-General further believes that all Member States remain committed to the principles of United Nations reform and he will begin the process of seeking mutually agreed ways to pursue this agenda.
