The previous UN Secretary General from Asia was U Thant. Thant was from Myanmar and served as the United Nations Secretary General for a decade from 1961.

Annan said, "The Secretary General is elected on a rotational basis. There is a general sense that next time it would be from Asia." He commented while holding a press conference at Indian capital New Delhi at the end of his three-day visit.

Annan also said that Thailand’s deputy Prime Minister &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/world/2003/06/20/48497.html ' target=_blank>Surakiart Sathirathai has already announced his candidature for the key position in the United Nations. He views Sathirathai as the potent candidate for the position, as Thailand’s deputy Prime Minister has got the backing of the ASEAN alliance, reports All Headline News.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
