NPR's Ted Clark reports that the United States stood by its opposition to renewing the term of office of UN Secretary General Boutros-Ghali by vetoing a Security Council resolution to renew his appointment for another five years. The veto sets the stage for what promises to be a long and acrimonious argument between the US and the rest of the world, which wants to see Boutros-Ghali get another term.
