The top man at the U.N. shared thoughts on everything from the economy to the environment at the Bush Library Friday night.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was the featured speaker at the William Waldo Cameron Forum on Public Affairs. Ki-moon touched on the direction of the United Nations and global climate change.

He also expressed interest in the U.S. presidential race. "I've been very closely monitoring TV debates," said Ki-Moon. "As far as I can tell you as of today, I'm pretty confident that whoever may be elected by the wish of the American citizens. I'll be able to work very closely with the future president of the United States."

The Korean born Ki-moon is the eighth secretary-general of the U.N.
