MetadataShow full item record
United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has warned the ongoing territorial disputes in the South China Sea are putting at risk Asia’s global goals of prosperity, stability, and dignity for all. Ban, who was in San Francisco over the weekend to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the UN Charter, said these include competing territorial or maritime claims, political and communal tensions, and non-traditional security threats such as transnational organized crime and terrorism. He has consistently called on all parties to resolve their disputes in the South China Sea in a peaceful and amicable manner, through dialogue and in conformity with international law, including the UN Charter.
