SECRETARY-GENERAL EXPRESSES APPRECIATION OF BUDGET ACTIONS BY GENERAL ASSEMBLY
The following statement was issued today by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:
The Secretary-General is deeply appreciative of the fact that Member States have adopted early this morning resolutions on additional resources, as well as administrative matters, for the 2008-2009 programme budget period that covers such areas as development and political affairs, as well as human resources management, information technology and administration of justice.
The Member States also adopted a resolution to guide the Secretary-General in his preparation for the 2010-2011 programme budget proposals to be deliberated in the sixty-fourth session of General Assembly.
This morning’s decision by the General Assembly enhances the United Nations ability to better respond to the needs of the Organization.
