Indonesian FM to UN General Assembly: World is in need for a ‘new paradigm for peace’
(MENAFN) Peaceful remedies give the only hope for stopping wars around the world, Indonesia’s foreign minister informed the UN General Assembly Debate on Monday.
Focusing mainly on the plight of the peoples of Palestine and Afghanistan, Retno Marsudi stated the globe is need for a “new paradigm to reignite the spirit of peace,” and declared that it is a worldwide responsibility to apply it “consistently, not selectively or only when we see fit.”
She went on: “The fundamental principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity are non-negotiable. For far too long, the people in Palestine have suffered and longed for peace. Until Palestine can truly become an independent state, Indonesia will stand firm in solidarity with our Palestinian brothers and sisters.
“People in Afghanistan also deserve a peaceful and prosperous life, where the rights of all people, including women, are equally respected, where access to education for women and girls are granted.
“Without this new paradigm, peace will remain an elusive dream.”
