United Nations - Join the United Nations Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions (ACABQ) in celebrating its 70th year of existence! The ACABQ was established by the General Assembly in its resolution 14 (I) of 1946 to advise the Assembly on budgetary, administrative and financial matters of the United Nations and its specialized agencies. The Committee started its formal functions in November of 1946. Today, the sixteen-member ACABQ meets primarily in New York in closed sessions fulfilling its role of providing advice to the General Assembly and other intergovernmental bodies. Its members serve in their individual capacity, not representing their countries. As the scope and complexity of the work of the United Nations continue to evolve, the ACABQ provides an assurance that all administrative, budgetary and financial aspects have been thoroughly reviewed. In its seventy years, the Advisory Committee has assisted the General Assembly in arriving at consensus-based decisions on the Organization’s critical policy matters and budgets across the whole spectrum of the Organization’s work, including major change initiatives. http://www.un.org/ga/acabq/70th

United Nations Chief Ban Ki-moon is meeting with South Sudanese President Salva Kiir in Juba Thursday. His visit comes as opposing groups in the South Sudan peace process prepare to form a unity government mandated by the peace deal they signed last summer. After two years of civil war, rebel leader Riek Machar and president Kiir inked the pact in August, agreeing to run a unity government for 30 months before holding elections. Kiir appointed Machar as his vice president last week, in the first step toward forming the unity government. A short while ago, the South Sudan opposition leader and vice president Riek Machar had a conversation with the U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. Mr. Machar joins VOA’s Vincent Makori by phone from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
