President of the UN General Assembly John W. Ashes to visit Romania in end-July


The President of the United Nations’ (UN) General Assembly, John W. Ashe, is going to pay a working visit to Romania at the end of July, the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MMSC) announced a press release quoted by Agerpres. The visit was announced during a bilateral meeting between John W. Ashe and the Romanian Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Attila Korodi, at the UN headquarters in New York, where the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development recently took place, under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). On the sidelines of the Forum, Minister Attila Korodo, who is also Deputy Chairman of the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA) had a meeting with the ECOSOC President, Martin Sajdik, with whom he discussed about the Ministerial Declaration that was adopted in the last day of the event in New York. ‘After fierce negotiations, I believe that we did a good job, given that the document we adopted more clearly draws the lines to be followed in the post-2015 agenda. But we also have a great responsibility: I believe that it is essential our decisions to be put in more simple words, so that the people will be able to understand that they are actually meant for them,’ Sajdik specified. The Romanian official’s agenda also included a meeting with Amina J. Mohammed, Deputy Secretary General of the UN and UN Special Advisor on Post-2015 Development Planning.
