NEW YORK – On Sunday, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon called for non-violence in Egypt before an audience which included Mahmoud Abbas and Nicolas Sarkozy.

“With respect to Egypt, I once again make a call for restraint, non-violence, and respect for fundamental freedoms and human rights,” the Secretary General said in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where he is attending a summit of the African Union.

While saying that challenges to Africa remain great, Ban said he sees “clearer skies ahead" due to the African Union.

"The Charter of the United Nations of which you are all signatories, and the Constitutive Act of the African Union share the same principles and goals and values,” Ban said. “Peace, security, stability, human rights, good governance and the rule of law, dignity and economic development, social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.”
