Speaking in the birthplace of the United Nations, San Francisco, where he celebrated 70 years since the historic signing of the UN Charter, Ban Ki-moon said that the US Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality is "a great step forward for human rights in the United States".

The Secretary-General received the coveted Harvey Milk Medal from the Harvey Milk Foundation on Friday for "his unparalleled and unequivocal support of LGBT inclusive human rights across the globe" and leading the UN Free & Equal campaign for LGBT equality.

 Ahem, your image or knowledge of a "minister" I take it is a Christian one. Figures. A minister among many titles is a counselor and in policy is often inferred as plenipotentiary or honorary. I just prefer minister because I support many industries that focus on leadership research and development.

You have a sympathetic view of the UN, for whatever reason. UN is a governmental body charged and paid a lot (at least $8 billion annually) to perform.

Again, for whatever reason you're sympathetic to the UN is your choice. I also have a duty which conflicts with the UN international body becoming so lame that, its agenda is to support gay marriage in the U.S.

1941 - A special relationship helps forge the beginnings of the United Nations

United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom held their first wartime conference in August 1941. Though the United States had not entered the war at this time, Roosevelt and Churchill issued a joint statement on 14 August 1941 known as the Atlantic Charter.

The President of the United States of America and the Prime Minister, Mr. Churchill…deem it right to make known certain common principles in the national policies of their respective countries on which they base their hopes for a better future for the world…

The principles outlined in the Atlantic Charter would be embraced by the future United Nations.

1951 - Establishing the rights of refugees and the legal obligation of States to protect them

Article 14 of the International Declaration of Human Rights states: “Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution.”

In 1951, the United Nations took two important steps in its efforts to protect international refugees and their right to seek asylum from persecution.

The first occurred in Geneva, Switzerland, where a diplomatic conference was convened to draft a framework for defining who is a refugee, their rights, and the legal obligations of states. The end result was the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.

The second step was the creation of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in December 1950. The Office’s early mission was addressing the urgent problem of the 1 million European refugees displaced by the Second World War. UNHCR began its operations fully the following year with the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees as its foundation.

1961 - “Dag Hammarskjöld is dead. But the United Nations lives.”

United Nations Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld lost his life on 18 September 1961 when his plane crashed near Ndola airport in Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia). The issue of the Congo had dominated the UN since the former Belgium colony gained independence on 30 July 1960. The Secretary-General had been in Congolese capital to discuss details of UN aid when he learned of fighting between United Nations peacekeeping troops and forces striving for independence in the province of Katanga. His plane went down en route to peace talks between the government and separatists.

Ready? Deadline is 29 June.

WMO is holding a photo competition on the 2016 World Meteorological Day theme: “Hotter, drier, wetter. Face the Future.”The theme has been chosen to illustrate the reality of climate change. As a result of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, land and sea surface temperatures are rising. The frequency and intensity of extreme events like heatwaves and heavy rainfall is increasing. Without urgent action to cut carbon dioxide emissions, this trend will accelerate.

Enter the @WMOnews Photo Competition: Hotter, drier, wetter. Face the Future. http://goo.gl/iZRvQ0

1971 - A new Secretary-General navigates the UN through the Seventies

Mr. Waldheim was also present at historic UN events, such as the first Security Council meeting held in Africa. The meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, was the first time in 20 years that the Security Council had met away from the UN New York Headquarters.

Mr. Waldheim would guide the United Nations for two terms. He was succeeded by Javier Perez de Cuellar of Peru, who assumed office as Secretary-General on 1 January 1982. Mr. Waldheim went on to become President of Austria.
