Georgia President Salome Zurabishvili made an online address to the UN General Assembly meeting yesterday, dedicated to the UN’s 75th anniversary, where she said that ‘Georgia is not ready to simply stand by the damages caused by occupation to human lives and to human rights’, Agende.ge news reports.

"Time has come for a fresh look, out of an intolerably frozen situation, at the opportunities that the new world paradigm opens, and be ready for testing new solutions. Peace and development being the only way forward,” Zurabishvili said.

She stated that the “UN we need is one that will inspire our citizens, create trust and bring effective leadership”.

Zurabishvili said that ‘the future we want’ is based on four pillars: peace, a viable planet, an inclusive and healthy society and educated citizens, adding that the future of ‘our old but young organisation is in our hands’.

"For such a future to take form, we need to respect our principles and treat the (UN) Charter and the Sustainable Development Agendas, not as words on paper, but as concrete goals that need political will and commitment,” she said. 

Zurabishvili stated that  the UN is at a crossroads: Global threats from terrorism to climate change and now the coronavirus pandemic.
