Lukashenko regrets the world has not become more stable

NEW YORK, 29 September (BelTA) – Speaking at the general debate of the 70th session of the UN General Assembly in New York Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko stated with regret that the world had not become more stable, predictable and comfortable for the majority of people, despite immense work and tremendous efforts to implement large-scale plans of the United Nations, BelTA informs.

“Seventy years ago the end of the Second World War brought a hope for humankind that a just world order based on universal understanding and cooperation may be established,” the Belarusian leader noted.

“However, the Cold War that followed divided the world into opposing blocs. After the break-up of the Soviet Union and the socialist camp many thought that reasons for confrontation of states and military conflicts would finally disappear. Alas, these hopes have not come true so far,” the President of Belarus stressed.

Alexander Lukashenko noted that at the summit world leaders had adopted an ambitious agenda for the UN for the next 15 years.

The outcome document focuses on five strategic areas that are vitally important for all of us: people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership. These notions have not emerged from nowhere. They have become a logical continuation of efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, said the Belarusian leader.

However, according to him, these efforts cause conflicting emotions.

“Yes, there are certain shifts in reducing global levels of poverty, increasing protection and health of mothers and children, ensuring access to education. But, speaking about the achievements, we have to recognize that we did not achieve a qualitative breakthrough for the benefit of human civilization,” the Belarusian head of state emphasized.

“Moreover, we see that the world is being engulfed by ever new challenges and old problems that are getting more acute. And these challenges and problems do not concern just one area, but all of the most important areas of human activity,” he added.
