U.N. tacitly agrees to reappoint Ban for second term: official

SEOUL, March 3 (Yonhap) -- The prevailing view within the United Nations is to keep its chief Ban Ki-moon at the helm for another term, Seoul's ambassador to the U.N. said Thursday.

The South Korean-born secretary-general's first term is set to expire at the end of this year, but with Ban's "outstanding" leadership, he is almost certain to stay for another five-year period, Amb. Park In-kook said in an interview with Yonhap News Agency.
