Ban calls for an end to violence in Darfur, Middle East

New York - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has pledged to push for lasting peace in the Middle East and an end to the conflict in Darfur in the coming year, telling world leaders it will be one of the most challenging years in UN history.

At the opening of the UN General Assembly's annual ministerial meeting on Tuesday, Ban called for "an internal climate of change" at the world body to address the growing number of issues requiring collective action.

The session ends on October 3.
