UN pays homage to U Thant

UN: United Nations has highlighted the significance of the services rendered by former UN Secretary General U Thant for more than a decade (1961-1971), to mark his birth anniversary.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon paid homage in a message to the third UN Secretary General, who died in 1974.

The Burmah diplomat assumed as UN Secretary General after the death of his predecessor Dag Hammarskjold in a plane accident.

As part of the tribute to U Thant, Ban Ki-Moon defined him as a statesman with skill and constant persistence who knew how to run UN during a decade full of changes.

He also recalled his role in several world important events, among which he mentioned the so-called Crisis of the Caribbean in 1961.

“His values of world solidarity and his ideas that UN role must always be centered on dignity and the well-being of people are currently the most important part of our job”, UN Secretary General said.
