"This is a time of trial - for Iraq, for the United Nations and for the world," the Deputy Secretary-General said in her opening remarks this evening to the Harvard Model United Nations Conference in Boston.

"How this crisis is resolved will affect greatly the course of peace and security in the coming years in the region, and the world."
The Harvard Model United Nations attracts more than 2,000 students and faculty from around the world, who gather to represent countries in a simulation of the world body.
