THE 72nd SUMMIT OF THE UNITED NATION, THE FLAME OF PEACE KEEPS BURNING IN THE HEARTS OF WORLD LEADERS.
Heads of states and heads of government, with their delegations came together this September 2017 in New York, U S A for the 72nd summit of the United Nations Organisation to talk about pertinent issues that have always prevented the world from being the eden that man has toiled so hard all his existance to make it be.
President of the 72nd UN General Assembly.
“The UN was created for people. Its job is to help people who are striving for peace and a decent life, on a sustainable planet”.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
“No country should be allowed to undermine the global non-proliferation regime or to threaten peaceful countries. The European Union calls together with Japan and South Korea, our close friends and strategic partners, for a peaceful denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. And we also call on all concerned to uphold the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran as a multilateral deal that is delivering more security for us all”.
President of France, outlining his country’s duty to speak up for the voiceless, said the people of Syria had suffered enough. The international community should acknowledge its collective failure and find methods to build a durable peace.
“Since our admission as a member state in 1960, we have always participated in allefforts to bring about global peace, security and development”.
“For Cameroon and most of our States, peace is the sine qua non for the survival of humanity and for sustainable development. Such peace remains dangerously under threat, notably from terrorism, conflicts, poverty and climate”
H.E. Ms. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf
“The work of the United Nations has never been more important to the search for peace and the sustenance for global stability than it is today,” she said. Noting that the Organization offered great hope to a troubled world, she stressed that “Liberians bear witness to this truth” and remained grateful for United Nations support.
H.H. Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani
Israel still stood in the way of a lasting, just and comprehensive peace in the Middle East, he said. The international community must give high priority to the resumption of peace
H.E. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan
“ Global peace and stability had regressed due to the spread of terrorism and war, violent actions of xenophobia, cultural racism and animosity towards Islam. Sincere cooperation at the United Nations and development of a new perspective to promote world peace would be the most effective way to reverse that negative trend. Turkey was pursuing enterprising foreign policy and humanitarian action to help create a safer, more prosperous world”.
