The United Nations and International Variables

  • 23 January 2007

Ambassador Muhammad Al Nuaimi referred to the
inception of the United Nations on June 26, 1945 as a
significant political and historic landmark for humanity. He
spoke of the conviction behind the establishment regarding
the need to establish an international organization whose
main objectives and goals consist of creating a fair and
just international system, to solve problems and promote
peace. With an increase in the number of member states at
the United Nations; the proliferation of civil, regional and
international problems resulting from the continuance of
wars and colonization and the widening socio-economic
gap between developed and developing countries and the
pursuit of arms race. The conviction of the majority of
member states was reinforced regarding the importance
of developing and reforming the UN and its primary
organs, especially the Security Council, in order to
cope with the international variables on the political,
security, military, economic and social fronts, as well as
the information, telecommunications, media and advance
technology revolution for the progress of humanity. The
speaker highlighted how the international community
has failed in controlling several problems, due to doublestandard
in policies adopted by some big powers in their
international relations, raising skepticism over the UN role
in maintaining international peace and security. This has
led to the continuation of conflicts around the world, the
increase in unemployment, poverty and illiteracy rates and
the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, including
nuclear weapons and international terrorism, in addition
to natural disasters and environmental pollution in various
parts of the world, especially developing countries.
