Uzbek FM Stressed UN’s Central Role In Tackling Challenges

UNITED NATIONS, Sept 25 (NNN-XINHUA) – Uzbek Foreign Minister, Vladimir Norov, yesterday, stressed the need to strengthen the central role of the United Nations in tackling global and regional challenges.

The world today is facing a deep crisis of trust at the global level, an intensification of numerous challenges to stability and security, growth of geopolitical confrontation, and an increase of risks of bloc mentality, he told the General Debate of the UN General Assembly.

Armed conflicts destabilising international trade and economic ties, growing food and energy security challenges, global climate shocks and the spread of infectious diseases – all contribute to the emergence of humanitarian crises and threaten the foundations of life, he said.

No country can avoid or tackle global risks and challenges alone, he said. “Constructive dialogue and multilateral cooperation, based on consideration and respect for the interests of all countries are the only way out of the dangerous spiral of crises. Effective international cooperation is essential if the world is to become more stable, predictable, and prosperous.”

“The UN should evolve for it to respond effectively to the transformation taking place,” said Norov.

The establishment of inter-civilisational and intercultural relations and dialogue is also extremely important, in finding coherent approaches and solutions and relieving global tensions, uncertainty and unpredictability, he said.

With this in mind, at last week’s Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, Uzbek President, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, proposed an initiative. “Its goal is to contribute to the restoration of mutual trust and stability in international relations, as well as, to strengthen solidarity through the establishment of a broad dialogue free from geopolitical rivalry, ideological contradictions, and disputes,” he said.
