‘No change’ in world order
UNITED NATIONS – Suriname’s new President Desi Bouterse says there has been no fundamental change since he addressed the United Nations’ General Assembly 27 years ago.
In addressing the 65th Session of the UN General Assembly debate over the weekend, Bouterse said that the UN’s “lofty goal, of creating an international order based on respect for international law and the peaceful settlement of disputes, seems elusive as ever”.
He said change required the international community to “refrain from using military force and/or economic coercion”, adding that CARICOM rejected the “unilaterally imposed embargo against Cuba” by the United States. (CMC)
