United Nations (EFE).- The war in Ukraine, nuclear proliferation, Russia, Iran, China and the global food crisis dominated US President Joe Biden’s speech to the UN General Assembly.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine
“This war is about ending Ukraine’s right to exist, quite simply,” Trump said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin says he had to act because Russia was under threat (but) no one was threatening Russia. Only Russia was the one looking for conflict,” Biden added.
The US president also accused Putin of making “irresponsible threats regarding the use of nuclear weapons”.
Iran and China also had their place
“The United States is clear: we will never allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. I continue to believe that diplomacy is the best way to achieve this outcome,” Biden said.
“We are not looking for conflict, we are not looking for a cold war. We do not want any nation to have to choose between the United States and another ally. But the United States will promote a free, open Indo-Pacific and safe and a prosperous world,” Biden said in response to recent tensions with China.
The call for reform in the Security Council
“I think now is the time to make this institution more inclusive,” the US president said, referring to the UN Security Council.
“The basis of the United Nations Charter, a stable and just rules-based order, is under attack by those who want to destroy it for their own political gain,” Biden insisted.
hunger does not wait
“Many people are suffering in all countries of the world. No matter what divides us, if parents can’t feed their children, nothing else matters,” the US president said, announcing $2.9 billion in aid to tackle the food crisis.
