STORYLINE

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono opened the two day African/Asian summit summit by calling on all the attending nations to cooperate more closely, so people could “live in comfort and dignity, free from fear of violence and all be free from the clutches of poverty.”

The United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan used his speech on Friday to urge Asian and African leaders to back his push to reform the UN.

Annan said to more than 40 heads of state the developing world could benefit from plans to increase development aid and boost the world body’s role in protecting human rights.

Annan has proposed enlarging the Security Council to include more voices from the developing world.

Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra called on his counterparts to concentrate on tackling poverty, calling it the ‘enemy of all’.

“Poverty breeds insecurity and instability, poverty breeds pandemics and disease, poverty breeds conflict and eventually terrorism,” Shinawatra said.

Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf said Pakistan would do it could to strengthen bonds between his country and all others at the summit as well as the rest of the world.

The two-day summit in Jakarta draws together presidents, prime ministers and kings.

In all, 80 nations were represented at the 50th anniversary of the first Asia-Africa conference that gave birth to the “Nonaligned Movement”, which tried to steer a neutral course during the Cold War.
