Kingdom backs Ban

The Cambodian government pledged its full support yesterday for United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s bid to remain at the helm of the world body for another five-year mandate.
Koy Kuong, spokesman for Ministry of Foreign Affairs, praised the smooth cooperation Cambodia and the UN had enjoyed under Ban Ki-Moon’s stewardship, highlighting de-mining missions the Cambodian army had performed in Africa as UN peacekeepers. Ban Ki-Moon, who spent three days in the Kingdom in October last year and met with Prime Minister Hun Sen, announced that he would run for a second five-year term as the head of the UN on Tuesday this week.
