New UN General Assembly President Ali Treki

The one-year presidency of the United Nations General Assembly was assumed on Tuesday 15 September by veteran Libyan diplomat Ali Abdussalam Treki [or Treiki or Triki], a former Permanent Representative to the UN and Vice-President of the General Assembly, former ambassador to France and to the Arab League in Cairo, and a former Foreign Minister. Treki's candidacy was supported by the 53-nation African Union, which is currently chaired by Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi. Further details can be read here and here.

It is to Mr Treki that the open letter calling for the institution of a commission of inquiry into the Lockerbie disaster has been addressed.
