U.N. chief's message to North Korean leader

(CNN) – Delivering a direct message to North Korea's young leader Thursday, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged Kim Jong Un to focus less on making threats against the United States, and more on improving conditions for his own people.

"I would strongly ask him to, first of all, refrain from taking any such provocative measures, which is clearly in violation against the Security Council resolution and against the expectation of the international community," Ban said during an exclusive appearance on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer."

BLITZER’S BLOG: World leaders flock to New York

By CNN’s Wolf Blitzer

I've been coming to New York almost every September for a long time, because of the United Nations General Assembly. It convenes at the same time each year. Leaders flock from all over the world, making it a good opportunity to sit down with some of them.

In recent years, I've also been able to interview former President Bill Clinton. He hosts his Clinton Global Initiative in New York at the same time, to allow world leaders to attend both the General Assembly and the CGI. In fact, tomorrow I'll be sitting down with Clinton.
