(Finance) – Firm condemnation of the Russian invasion together with the request to stand by Kiev also against the potential attackers of tomorrow: this is the focus of the speech given by US President Biden to the general assembly of the UN who welcomed him with applause. Also applauding Volodymyr Zelensky and the entire Ukrainian delegation.
“Russia believes that the world will get tired and allow Ukraine to be brutalized without consequences. But I ask you this: if we abandon the fundamental principles of the UN Charter to appease an aggressor, can any member state feel confident that it will be protected? If we allow Ukraine to be partitioned, will the independence of any nation be guaranteed? The answer is no. We must stand up to this blatant aggression today to deter other potential attackers tomorrow,” Biden says.
“From day one of my administration, the US has treated the climate crisis as the existential threat it poses, not just to us, but to all of humanity.” Says the American president. “Record heat waves in the United States and China. Fires devastating North America and southern Europe. Fifth year of drought in the Horn of Africa. Tragic flood in Libya that killed thousands of people”the list made by Biden on the latest tragic events.
Turkish President Recep Tayyp Erdogan also pledged to “strengthen” his diplomatic efforts to end the war in Ukraine. He announced it while speaking to the UN General Assembly. “We have tried to keep our Russian and Ukrainian friends around the table with the thesis that war will have no winners and peace will have no losers”, he said, guaranteeing that “efforts will be increased”.
“The Russian invasion of Ukraine, in violation of the UN Charter and international law, has unleashed an epicenter of horror. Beyond Ukraine – said the UN Secretary General -, the war has serious implications for everyone Nuclear threats put us at risk, ignoring global treaties and conventions makes us less safe, the poisoning of global diplomacy hinders progress on all fronts. We must not stop working for peace, a just peace in line with there UN Charter and international law”.
