What is going on with the UN Millennium Development Goals Advocacy Group

The Millennium Development Goals Advocacy Group was established last June to increase support for the MDGs prior to the U.N. high level meeting later this month to consider steps to improve the compliance with the 2015 benchmarks. The Group is co-chaired by Rwandan President Paul Kagame and Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. It includes a couple of Nobel Prize winners and other distinguished persons.

I have come across a report that Rodrigues Zapatero refused to meet with Kagame recently. Here is another report with the same content.

Here is a report that "Kagame has told fellow African leaders that “trivialisation” of the UN Millennium Development Goals as it happened in Spain needs to be avoided if they are to be achieved."
