Andrei Savinykh, the Press Secretary of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry, has told journalists that the political discussion involves heads of states, heads of governments and foreign ministers. UN member states are to exchange opinions on the most urgent international issues during their political debate.
“In the context of sustainable development, global climatic problems will be discussed, alongside the role of regional and sub-regional organisations. They’ll debate preventive diplomacy to build a safer and more secure world, while discussing how best to support those countries most hit by the global financial and economic crisis,” notes Mr. Savinykh. He explains that nuclear arms and ordinary weapons will also be highlighted on the agenda.
Other regional problems will receive particular attention — such as the Palestinian-Israeli settlement and the status of Palestine with the UN, as well as how best to bring stability to the riot-hit regions of North Africa and the Middle East.
