UN flag at half-mast to mourn Polish president


The UN flag is hoisted at half-mast to mourn the deaths of Polish President Lech Kaczynski and 87 other members of a Polish delegation who were killed in a plane crash on Saturday morning, at the UN Headquarters in New York, the United States, April 12, 2010.

 

The United Nations on Monday flew its blue and white flag at half-mast at the UN Headquarters in New York to mourn the deaths of Polish President Lech Kaczynski and 87 other members of a Polish delegation who were killed in a plane crash on Saturday morning.

The UN flag was hoisted at half-mast before the UN Secretariat Building in the compound on the First Avenue in midtown Manhattan, central New York City.

"The United Nations stands with the Polish people and government at this time of sorrow and I hope they will be able to overcome this moment of sorrow," UN Secretary-general Ban Ki-moon told reporters here at a press conference prior to his departure to attend the summit on nuclear non-proliferation in Washington, D. C..

"The flag has been at half-mast," Ban said.

"I expressed my most profound condolence at such a tragic passing away of President Lech Kaczynski with whom I had been working very closely, particularly on climate change," he said.
