The United Nations General Assembly has wrapped up its 72nd annual general debate with its President underscoring prevention of conflicts before they break out, support for UN peacekeeping, sustainable development, and respect for human rights and gender equality among the major priorities raised by the 196 Heads of State, Government and delegations.

“You reaffirmed your commitment to the UN. And to each other. You said we are stronger together, in a system based on dialogue and multilateralism,” President Miroslav Lajčák declared, summing up the main thrust of the debate whose theme was ‘Focusing on People - Striving for Peace and a Decent Life for All on a Sustainable Planet.’

During six days of debate, several representatives focused on the global economic and political systems — including within the United Nations — as unfair and unrepresentative, with many stressing that the Organization’s reform must include a reorientation of the Security Council’s membership.

“Incidents should not govern policy; but, policy incidents.”

— Napoleon Bonaparte.

Quote

“The question upon which the whole future peace and policy of the world depends is this: Is the present war a struggle for a just and secure peace, or only for a new balance of power? If it be only a struggle for a new balance of power, who will guarantee, who can guarantee, the stable equilibrium of the new arrangement? … There must be, not a balance of power, but a community of power; not organized rivalries, but an organized common peace.”

— Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States from 1913 to 1921.
