This year's United Nations General Assembly was the first for Ban Ki-moon as secretary-general of the United Nations.

Shortly after taking his oath as secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon declared Africa to be his 'top priority'. During his interview with Mark Seddon, the secretary-general discussed his hopes and fears for ending the conflict in Darfur, Sudan and re-kindled wars in Eastern Congo. He also ranged over the role of UN peace keeping across the World, the peace process in the Middle East, war in Iraq and the UN Security Council stand-off with Iran over it's nuclear programme.
