UN praises Luxembourg commitment to development

In a recent meeting between the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Xavier Bettel, the UN chief expressed his appreciation for Luxembourg’s important commitment to development aid and the European Union's leadership towards reaching a meaningful agreement on climate change in Paris. Mr. Ban also took the opportunity to emphasize the importance of ensuring a success at the Third International Conference on Financing for Development, set to take place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in July, a subject he also discussed with the President of Parliament of Luxembourg, Mars Di Bartolomeo. Conversations revolved around the negotiations on the UN post-2015 development agenda and the role of national parliaments in that context, and the Secretary-General expressed his appreciation for Luxembourg’s “strong and continuous commitment” to development aid. Climate change was also high on the agenda.
