UN Secretary General opens Addis Ababa Summit.
United Nations, July 14 (BNA): The U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Monday opened a development financing summit in Ethiopia's capital, calling for countries to demonstrate 'flexibility and compromise' as they attempt to end poverty and address climate change.
The ambitious objective of the five-day meeting is to establish rules for a more fair world of inclusive, low-carbon growth.
'I urge world leaders and ministers gathered here this week ae1/4 to exercise flexibility and compromise. Let's put aside what divides us and put aside our self-interest in favor of working together for the common well-being of humanity,' Ban told the opening of the summit in Addis Ababa, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
