UN's News Focus Website

If you're looking for a great source of information on current United Nations issues in the news, check out the UN's News Focus site, billed as "A one-stop guide to essential resources on UN issues in the news." The site pulls together a variety of relevant sources to a given issue, including news stories; Secretary-General remarks and statments; statements and briefings from related missions; Security Council meetings, resolutions, and statements; General Assembly resolutions; maps and images; links to external sources, and more.

Current issues include the Middle East, Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan, North Korea, the South Asia Earthquake, Terrorism, the Oil-for-Food Probe, and more. There is also an archive of New Focus pages.

For information about the United Nations, visit the Government Publications Library guide to United Nations Resources.
