United Nations Still Essential but Needs Reform to Be ‘Fit for Purpose’ in Coming Decades,
Speakers Say as General Assembly Debate Continues
Seventieth Session, 16th, 17th & 18th Meetings (AM, PM & Night)
HAGE G. GEINGOB, President of Namibia, said …He reaffirmed support for the inalienable rights of the people of Palestine and Western Sahara to self-determination and national independence, and called on the Organization to implement all resolutions on Palestine without pre-conditions, as well as texts calling for a free and fair referendum in Western Sahara.
SHINZO ABE, Prime Minister of Japan, … Japan valued health and education through a policy of human security, a point driven home by a photograph he had seen of a young woman who had fled a refugee camp near Damascus. In her bag, she carried a maternal and child health handbook that Japan had distributed at camps in Syria, Palestine and Jordan in hopes that a mother’s love could transform the soil that sometimes created despair.

HAMADI OULD MEIMOU, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Mauritania, …The Arab-Israeli conflict continued to be a threat to peace and security of a region that was vital to the world.
