Lethargic IITian
Musings of a 20-something lethargic IITian on India and Catholicism.

More from Kofi Annan's speech:

Mr. President,

Let me now turn to four current threats to world peace, where true leadership and effective action are badly needed.


Fourth, and finally, in South Asia the world has recently come closer than for many years past to a direct conflict between two nuclear weapon capable countries. The situation may now have calmed a little, but it remains perilous. The underlying causes must be addressed. If a fresh crisis erupts, the international community might have a role to play; though I gladly acknowledge - indeed, strongly welcome - the efforts made by well-placed Member States to help the two leaders find a solution.

I find it interesting that he does not explicitly mention India and Pakistan here.

By the way, now that Switzerland has joined the UN, the Vatican is the only Observer State (without full membership) left in the UN! (Of course, Taiwan isn't even a member ...)
