(AP) U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says his top hopes for 2013 are to reach a new agreement on climate change and to mobilize world leaders to urgently end the deadly and divisive war in Syria.


The U.N. chief told The Associated Press that he's also hoping for progress in reviving the still struggling global economy, restarting Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations and promoting political solutions in Mali, Congo and the Central African Republic.


Ban, speaking before heading to the World Economic Forum in Davos this week, said he plans to take the uncommon opportunity of being with some 2,500 government, business and civil society leaders in the Swiss ski resort to exchange frank views on these issues.


Ban warned: Climate change is fast happening much, much faster than one would have expected.
