July 29th, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is scheduled to depart New York this morning for a trip to Costa Rica and Nicaragua, a UN spokesperson told reporters yesterday.

 

Ban will arrive first in Nicaragua today, where he will meet with President Daniel Ortega, according to UN spokesman Farhan Haq.  Ban also plans to visit and evaluate a wind power project in the Rivas department.

 

“Ban will be accompanied by a delegation of UN officials to visit one of the largest project undertaken in Nicaragua,” said Nicaragua’s First Lady and official government spokeswoman, Rosario Murillo.

 

“It’s a success and at the same time an encouragement to Nicaragua, which is slowly gaining recognition for its policies for progress and public safety,” Murillo said through Nicaraguan official media.

 

On Wednesday morning, Ban will travel to Costa Rica, where he will meet with President Luis Guillermo Solis and Foreign Minister Manuel Gonzalez, as well as with representatives of indigenous groups.

 

Ban will also give a lecture entitled “Costa Rica and the United Nations: Challenges and Opportunities in the 21st Century” at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.

    Maybe Costa Rica would be better location for UN than NY. US goverment never listens to the UN.

    • runjohnny

      Yes, please move it. It’s useless. Let Costa Rica or some other country fund it.

    • mhogan

      Good idea, Ben. Please move the UN to Costa Rica. They deserve each other.

  • NorthendFool

    Yes Ben, your statement is so brilliant. US pays somewhere around 75 % of the UN budget while being told what to do and not do by all the commie bleeding heart liitle poor countries that spend all their time looing for handouts.
