UN council recommends 2nd term for Ban Ki-moon

UNITED NATIONS - The Security Council unanimously recommended on Friday that Ban Ki-moon be re-elected as UN secretary-general, virtually assuring the South Korean diplomat of five more years in the top UN job.
The 192-nation General Assembly is planning to meet on Tuesday to formally reappoint Ban, 67, to a second term of office beginning on January 1, diplomats said.
