Buhari Departs Nigeria For New York — UN Summit

Highlighting the importance of worldwide cooperation to address many pressing challenges around the globe, Muhammadu Buhari, the President of Nigeria, urged world leaders to sustain such collaboration, particularly in instances where there resources are insufficient and capacity weak at the national level.

"These can only be achieved through the worldwide community cooperating and providing critical assistance and material support".

"New conflicts should not make us lose focus on ongoing unresolved old conflicts".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson discussed cooperation on the Syrian crisis, Middle East issues, and the agreement to bring peace to Ukraine in a meeting on Sunday, Lavrov's spokeswoman said.

Applause came when he said "our regional organisation ECOWAS came together to uphold democratic principles in The Gambia", referring to the body's key role in the eventual transmission of power from long-time leader Yahya Jammeh to President Adama Barrow previous year.

The president also called attention to crises in Yemen and Myanmar, likening the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in the latter country to the crises in Bosnia and Rwanda in the 1990s.

Buhari, in his address harped on the need to fight corruption both locally and internationally.

Mr. Buhari also expressed concern over North Korea's nuclear weapons.

The theme for this year's debate is: "Focusing on people: Striving for peace and a decent life for all on a sustainable planet."Buhari will also join other world leaders at the welcoming reception to be hosted by the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres". These inequalities and gaps according to him, where the root causes of competition for resources, frustration and anger leading to spiralling instability. Comparing it to the 1962 Cuban missile, Buhari said if necessary action is not taken, the crisis may have a similar proportion to that of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during the Second World War. The delegation, led by the Security Council, should include members from all the regions.

The General Assembly debate, the U.N.'s 72nd session of addresses by world leaders, will continue until September 25.

Trump emphasised that no member state should shoulder a disproportionate share of the burden, and ended by saying that through working together and reform the United Nations will emerge as a stronger and more effective force for peace.

"Nigeria will continue to support the United Nations in all its efforts, including the attainment of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development".
