Ban meets with Al Gore to take on environment issues


Last week, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with former United States Vice President Al Gore to discuss climate change.

In his meeting, Ban said he was “very much encouraged by his firm commitment, as well as voluntary willingness to help the cause of the United Nations” regarding global warming. Ban also noted that he hopes to work closely with Gore to mobilize countries and “enhance the awareness of the international community with this issue.”
