MUNICH, Germany, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said Sunday he will unveil a new global anti-terror plan for the world body next month.

"Next month in Madrid I intend to outline an anti-terrorism strategy for the United Nations," Annan told the 41st Munich Conference on Security Policy.

"In the fight against terrorism, the United Nations must put its convening power, normative strength and global reach to good use," the U.N. chief said.

Annan said he had adopted the recommendation of a High Level Panel on Threats, Challenges and Change to create a trust fund to help U.N. member states meet binding anti-terrorism obligations imposed upon them by the U.N. Security Council.

"The United Nations must show zero tolerance of terrorism, of any kind, for any reason," he said.
