After the accomplishment of his tenure the UN Secretary General wants to continue his activities in women's education and agriculture in Africa. Kofi Annan, the UN Secretary General, who is leaving this post late December 2006, made this statement in an exclusive interview with Trend.

Commenting on his future plans the UN Secretary General said: Once I've done that, I'd like to devote my energy to focusing on the issues of women's education and agriculture in Africa. Helping to improve food security in Africa is an issue of special importance to me; without it I believe Africa's development will retain weak foundations.

Taking in to consideration his 10-year office at the post of UN Secretary-General Mr. Annan first of all wants to take some time off. I'd like to so that my wife and I can actually relax a bit, he said in his exclusive interview with Trend.
