Secretary-General to give speech on nuclear disarmament at Harvard University
13 May 2008 - Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will deliver a speech on nuclear disarmament next week at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The event, which is scheduled to take place on 23 May, will be open to the public.
Before becoming Secretary-General, Mr. Ban was a Mason Fellow who earned a Master in Public Administration at the Kennedy School in 1984.
Earlier this month over 100 States completed a two-week meeting seeking to pave the way towards the review of the United Nations-backed Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which forms the foundation of the world's nuclear non-proliferation regime.
The UN serves as the Secretariat for the NPT.
