US President Barack Obama addressed for the final time the 71st session of the UN General Assembly condemning the Russian Federation, the AA agency reports.
Not perceiving any kind of radicalism, racism and ethnic discrimination, Barack Obama said that total globalization has brought some conflicts and difficulties in today's world.
“Our societies are filled with uncertainty, and unease, and strife. Despite enormous progress, as people lose trust in institutions, governing becomes more difficult and tensions between nations become more quick to surface,” Obama said.
According to the American leader, global integration course should be adjusted so as not to disturb the foundations of globalization. In this regard the United States adheres to the policy of noninterference in the affairs of other states, while building an example to follow within its States. Moscow, in turn, holds a different opinion, resorting to outdated methods and violation of international law.
“In a world that left the age of empire behind, we see Russia attempting to recover lost glory through force. If Russia continues to interfere in the affairs of its neighbors, it may be popular at home, it may fuel nationalist fervor for a time, but over time it is also going to diminish its stature and make its borders less secure,” summed up the American president.
The 71st UN General Assembly session was launched at the UN Headquarters in New York on September 14.
