United Nations: Ban Ki-moon on Monday
announced that he will stand for a second five-year term as UN

second term as secretary general of the United Nations."

his term ends on December 31. Diplomats say that with no rival

its approval and the UN General Assembly will hold a vote
before the end of June.
