Language, however, no matter how beautifully expressed, can not replace facts and reality. “During Obama’s speech, people were yawning”. Poverty and the environment, trade and development. Instead, he will take a long-term approach and address human rights “issues through diplomatic relations, and increased commerce, and people-to-people ties”. This is a pivotal year for global development, in which the United States is joining countries around the world in pledging to leave no one behind based on the fundamental premise that societies are far more likely to secure lasting growth if all individuals have greater access to economic and political opportunities.
Obama called on the U.S. congress to lift sanctions against Cuba, just a month after Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to the island country to reopen the US embassy.
Russia’s Vladimir Putin addresses the 70th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Monday, September 28, 2015.
The “world can not stand by while Russian Federation violates Ukraine’s sovereignty with impunity”, Obama asserted. Preempting criticism from Putin, he said the USA learned a “hard lesson” in Iraq and that US and allies who invaded Libya did not do enough for the country after the killing of Muammar Gaddafi and this had contributed to the collapse of institutions there. But because of your tireless work, the world is a better place.
“As president of the United States, I am mindful of the dangers that we face”, he told the delegates.
Apart from sustainable development, the threat of terrorism and efforts to tackle the global scourge as well as defeating ISIS will also occupy centrestage. And the same is true of a world that chooses diplomacy over armed conflict.
Supporting President Obama’s statement, Lucilla Spini, head of science programs at worldwide Council for Science, pointed out that integration is the key for the development goals to work. “The United States makes no claim on territory there,” he said. And who has attempted to impose a unipolar system on the world. Each member country has one vote. While Obama deal with the results, Putin uncovered the reasons behind these events.
World leaders have already begun a whirlwind series of closed-door meetings on Syria on the United Nations sidelines. “And so the export of revolutions, this time of so-called “democratic” ones, continues”.
The president admitted that the USA “cannot solve the world’s problems alone”.
The meeting will be the first time Obama and Putin have held formal talks since the June 2013 G-8 summit, and it comes at the repeated request of Moscow, according to White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest. “You have destroyed everything, and now you talk about everything but the real reasons for this”.
Obama ended his speech on a hopeful note: Governments, he said, are made stronger by reflecting the goodness of their people, instead of fearing and repressing them.
The same respect for global law and principles should apply elsewhere. Hypocrisy and double standards will lead exclusively to more disasters.
On the other side of the Eurasian landmass, NATO, under the leadership of the United States, is building up its forces against Russian Federation. As Americans, we can’t sit idly by.
