Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, speaking at the 71st session of the UN General Assembly, shamed humanity for indifference to the many conflicts and problems in the world.
It order that the future generations could experience peace and security, all countries should take steps right now to resolve the conflicts in the world:
"Terrorist organizations such as ISIL, Jabhat al-Nusra and PYD (Kurdish terrorists in Syria - Ed.) continue their acts in the region. There is a risk that controversies in Caucasia may turn into hot conflicts. Many problems from Yemen to Ukraine are of particular urgency. On the other side, people in many countries of the world struggle with hunger, epidemics, poverty and illiteracy. This is a disgraceful picture injuring human dignity and disturbing human conscience,” Erdogan said.
One reason for the generation of new conflicts and aggravation of old ones, according to the Turkish leader is the lack of reforms in the UN Security Council. The problem is that there are only 5 countries in the Security Council permanent membership. But the organization should represent the entire international community:
“We propose that all 20 countries participating in the UN Security Council were regarded as permanent Security Council members. Rotation can take place every two years. This is the only way to ensure fairness,” said the President of Turkey.
The 71st UN General Assembly session was launched at the UN Headquarters in New York on September 14.
