UN General Assambly takes place in complicated context

23/09/2014
World leaders gathered in New York this week to address a variety of crisis: State Islamic violence is ravaging Iraq and Syria, the exponential spread of the deadly Ebola virus in Africa and deadlocked negotiations over Iran's nuclear program.
There is little hope for the 193 countries of the UN General Assembly to solve many problems in 5-day race every year with all speech. But on the bench, U.S. officials have planned to mobilize its allies to commit specific military aid to help defeat the Islamic State (IS) occupying a large part of Syrian and Iraq’s territory.
The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said that more than 140 heads of state and government will attend the annual “general discussion” on Wednesday - September 24 and ends in September 30 in which he noted an unusually large number of serious conflicts taking place in the Middle East, Africa and Ukraine.
“The world is facing a severe crisis”, Mr. Ban told reporters.
“All of the brutal attacks on civilians including children”, he said. “All of them under the colors of denomination, races or dangerous tribal. Many groups have proved dangerous actions that forces the international community to respond”.
UN officials and delegates said the top issues for Western and the Arab leaders is that aggression of the Islamic State, who caused a wave of sectarian violence, behead and civilian massacres.
“By connecting together, we will address the issue of violence in Syria and Iraq, where conflict and the government have failed to provide a fertile ground for extremist groups”, Mr. Ban said.
President Barack Obama expects to stand on the podium of the United Nations on Wednesday to urge more countries to participate in his coalition with the participation of more than 40 countries to prevent further territorial expansion of IS. The United States bombed targets named IS in Iraq IS in the last month but has yet to bomb Syria.
The White House said that it is uncertain and Obama will meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani when both were in New York this week. However, Foreign Minister John Kerry expects to hold talks with Iranian Secretary Mohammad Javad Zarif first about the nuclear programs of Iran and IS.
On last Friday, Kerry said at a special meeting of the Security Council that Iran could play a better role in helping solve the IS, a clear change in American views. Both Iran and the United States ruled out military cooperation earlier.
On Wednesday, President Obama will host a rare summit meeting of the UN Security Council on issues surrounding the fight to the rebels from abroad.
At Wednesday's meeting, the Council will adopt a plan of resolution to require countries to “prevent and stop” the recruitment and transportation of fighting rebels in  militant groups such as IS. Overseas fighting rebels in IS are said to be the most brutal of IS.
The member states of the UN will solve the crisis in the West African Ebola. Obama and the other leaders will attend a high-level meeting on rising exponentially and Ebola epidemic ravaging Liberia, Sierra Leone and other countries in the region.
This meeting comes shortly after the UN Security Council declared Ebola as a “threat to peace and international security” and founded the first mission of the United Nations towards solving the threats to public health.
Since Ebola epidemic was first detected in March, Ebola has infected at least 5,357 people, according to the World Health Organization, mainly in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. It has also spred to Senegal and Nigeria. The virus has killed about 2,630 people.
President of Liberia Ellen Johnson Sirleaf expected to give speech at the General Assembly this week but the trip to New York was canceled due to Ebola crisis.
While all speech is taking place, the Foreign Affairs senior oficials of United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China are meeting in New York with Iranian officials. They will try to break the deadlock in negotiations, aiming at ending sanctions in return for curbing Iran’s nuclear program.
Although the deadline for a long-term contract is only 2 months away, diplomats relating to the talks said that a deal in New York is unlikely to happen.
There will also be a high-level meeting on the conflicts in Syria, Libya, South Sudan, Ukraine, Central African Republic, Mali, Israel-Palestine issue and the UN’s war on poverty.

The US idea of what makes a partner- we supply stuff, we kill people, we are the only ones with boots on the ground ,all the others watch us and say “good job partner”

Very interesting that the countries who were once active supporters & promoters of Islamic state – United States, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, etc – suddenly became its enemy. Just for ousting Assad, they created a monster and now they are trying to destroy the same Frankenstein they created.

Transmission of the virus in Liberia was "already intense", and taxis being used to transport infected patients appeared to be "a hot source of potential virus transmission

The official U.S. priorities for this UNGA session are the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria; ensuring Iran does not get nuclear weapons;

While most of these issues are important, they will be addressed through treaty negotiations or by bodies like the Security Council or the World Health Organization.

Quân Hoàng 23/9/14 21:39

UNGA resolutions are non-binding and offer little more than rhetorical support for all but the SDGs, which will be negotiated and adopted by the UNGA.
