WINDHOEK, 22 JUL (NAMPA) - The United Nations’ (UN) Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs, Tayé-Brook Zerihoun paid a courtesy call on President Hifikepunye Pohamba at State House on Monday.
He was in Namibia to attend the Interactive Dialogue between the UN and the Southern African Development Community (SADC), which is being held at Swakopmund this week.
Zerihoun informed the Head of State that UN Secretary-General (SG) Ban Ki-Moon was extremely pleased about his visit here recently, and the UN really appreciates the stability and progress in Namibia, as well as the important role Namibia plays in the region and internationally.
Ban officiated at the commissioning of the UN House here on 25 June this year.
On his part, Pohamba said Namibia was honoured to host the UN SG.
“The people of Namibia, including the UN family residing here, were very happy to be part of the handing-over ceremony of the UN House by the Namibian Government,” he noted.
Zerihoun will leave Namibia on Tuesday for South Africa.
