ISTANBUL — UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon told an international conference on Somalia that if the international community does not redouble its efforts will be little chance for peace there.

The conference that opened in Istanbul on Saturday will address security issues including piracy, and provide a platform for Somalia's private sector, international business, and governments to launch new initiatives for reconstruction and job creation.

Ban said "if we do not redouble our efforts, there will be little chance for peace in Somalia."
