On daily increase are the aspiration and desire of all peoples, countries and regions to live in a just new world as an equal member of the international society, enjoying the independent and equal rights.
On the occasion of the 75th founding anniversary of the United Nations and the 75th Session of UN General Assembly(UNGA) held against this background, voices demanding supplements to the international laws and UN reform were heard ever higher.
On September 22 at the General Debate of the 75th Session of UNGA, the Cuban President stated that the unjust, undemocratic and unfair international order where a handful of powers are holding sway, contrary to the desire of the humankind, should not be maintained any longer. On August 31, prior to the 75th Session of UNGA, the Deputy Permanent Representative of Cuba to the United Nations held that the Security Council should not be reduced into an organ of politically oppressing the sovereign countries but develop into a mechanism that is more transparent, democratic, and fully representative through its reform.
On September 21, at high-level meeting of the General Assembly to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the UN, the Turkish President said that avarice, selfishness, monopoly of power, and ambition for sustaining the colonial rule are the biggest obstacles to realizing global justice. And the Kenyan President stressed that UN should be transformed into an organization which is friendlier to all people and is representative of the 21st century, saying that now is the high time for re-assessment of the role and effectiveness of UN.
Also, many other representatives of the member states including Singapore, Egypt and Mozambique urged at the General Debate of the 75th Session of UNGA that UN should be reformed in such a way that ensures all countries could address the major international issues in an impartial, objective and transparent manner on an equal footing in the international arena.
In today’s world where independence and justice are aspired after, it is a matter of course that there is an increasing demand for putting to an end and necessarily reforming the outdated and irrational system and order where injustice, tyranny, and inequality are rampant, far contradictory to the UN mission, the core of which is to ensure global peace and security and develop friendly relations among the countries based on the principle of sovereign equality.
Today, at the UN forum, the high-handedness and arbitrariness of specific countries are connived at, and the justice and truth are rather criminalized as injustice and falsehood, a far departure from the UN Charter and the fundamental principles governing the international relations. And this, in turn, justifies the interference in internal affairs of sovereign countries, “color revolution”, and the attempts of isolation and pressure as “righteous acts” for “guaranteeing democracy” and “safeguarding peace and human rights”, thus giving rise to concern and disappointment of the peoples of the world.
In the international society, there can be big or small countries, but not senior or junior countries. Also, there can be developed and underdeveloped countries, but not dominating countries or dominated countries.
The humankind does never want to see a world where high-handedness and arbitrariness, jungle law and lawlessness are rampant. It is the unanimous desire and noble international mission of all countries and nations to establish a new international order where genuine international justice and impartiality are firmly guaranteed.
It is the right voice of the world that the UN reform should be implemented in a way of respecting the standing and rights of the developing countries including the Non-Aligned countries making up an overwhelming majority of the world and fully reflecting their will and demands.
The DPRK will, in the future too, make active efforts to bring earlier a new independent world in firm unity and collaboration with all countries aspiring after independence and justice.
