Spain to donate some 1.2 billion dollars for UN Millenium Development Goals
font size    

The Spanish government announced in a statement on Monday that it will donate 935 million euros (about 1.2 billion U.S. dollars) for the United Nations Millennium Development Goals in 2006, 78 percent higher more than that in 2004.

Leire Pajin, secretary of state for international cooperation, signed an agreement on Monday with Eveline Herfkens, the UN executive coordinator, to deliver the money to the millennium campaign, the statement said.

Pajin said the agreement represents "a very important advance in quality and quantity, but there is still a long way to go."

Herfkens said it was the first time in history that human had resources, knowledge and consensus to end poverty, but he added that not all nations were fulfilling their aid promises.

The UN official praised Spain for paying more attention to the developing nations, especially those in Africa, to help them meet the Goals.
