The UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, held his first question-and-answer press conference in over 8 months today. He told members of the press that this year's General Assembly debate comes at a time of both turmoil and hope.

The UN Chief expressed concern at the situation facing millions of refugees fleeing violence in the Middle East and Africa — many now facing the difficulties of accessing the safety of Europe.

But Mr. Ban reiterated his hope for a future where crises are minimized as countries adopt the ambitious sustainable development agenda.
