Nueva York, 24 de febrero de 2011 — La ONU celebra hoy la inauguración histórica de su organización más nueva, ONU Mujeres, en una noche que incluye la participación de destacadas personalidades del ámbito de la política, el entretenimiento, los negocios y los medios, así como de la música y el cine en el Salón de la Asamblea General.


All leading dailies inform about the visit yesterday of Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to Lima. Official daily El Peruano highlights that “President (Garcia) ratifies the country’s commitment towards multilateralism and measures on climate change”.



The Secretary-General has been closely monitoring developments today in Egypt.

The Secretary-General reiterates his call for a transparent, orderly and peaceful transition that meets the legitimate aspirations of the Egyptian people and includes free, fair and credible elections.

He emphasizes that it is for the Egyptian people to determine their future. The Secretary-General calls again for any transition to fully respect human rights, and to ensure genuine and inclusive dialogue with all stakeholders.   The United Nations stands ready to assist in the process.

At this time, the Secretary-General calls once again on the Egyptian leadership to continue to ensure freedom of speech and assembly, and urges all parties to exercise calm and restraint and to refrain from violence.
