Eliasson Ends Term as General Assembly President
Swedish Foreign Minister Jan Eliasson has just ended his term as president of the United Nations General Assembly.
One of his final acts was to oversee the world body’s adopting on Friday a global strategy to counter terrorism. The document is the result of a year’s often bitter work.
Commenting on the difficulties in finding agreement, Jan Eliasson says combating terrorism is an extremely sensitive subject and is rightly a very emotional issue.
