Gennady Melnik. The development of the UN 70 years ago, after the most destructive war in history, strengthened the hope for a peaceful future based on common values, social justice and respect for human rights, and although since then much has been achieved, the vision of the founders of the UN is still far from implementation, said Prime Minister of Greece Alexis Tsipras from the platform of the jubilee General Assembly of the United Nations.
"Today We are witnessing the fall of a great humanitarian, the unprecedented movement of immigrants and the increase of poverty, violence, extremism and human rights violations," said Tsipras.
according to his statement, after a time returned not just the same ancient problem, but the same old failed recipes that have created these problems." The question is whether to continue with the same old recipes social exclusion, political fragmentation and economic aggression, or try to consistently return our future, " said Tsipras.
in the example, He cited Greece, which was heavily damaged from the financial fall of 2008 due to structural deficiencies of the economy and high debt and deficit." The neoliberal recipe that used We and other European countries, brought devastating social costs and contributed to the deterioration of the economic and financial fall, and not its treatment. We lost 25% of our GDP, our debt has reached 180% of GDP, and at the same time the level of unemployment has increased by 27%, increased migration certified experts in European countries ", - said the Prime Minister.
according to him, Greece was faced with the idea That it is obliged or to leave the Eurozone, or That the institutional and structural reforms have to go in combination with austerity measures and reduction of social benefits and salaries.
Tsipras said, because it is familiar to many countries at the UN General Assembly.
"We must realize That We need a global financial and economic system oriented on the formation of national strategies in the field of development and in the development agenda after 2015. We must discuss the Issue of debt restructuring in all centers of influence, so it is here, to encourage saving strategy enhancement, not deprivation strategy, " said Tsipras.
He also said That Greece was "on the 1st line of" a huge migratory flows for the period from January this year, arrived in the country of 300 thousand people, mostly from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, in order to move to the countries of Western Europe. All of them Greece is trying to help.
"However, for parts only method to solve this problem was the erection of high walls, the return of immigrants by force or shifting the liability to other as it can be. We do not believe That the future of Europe or the world can be built with higher walls, or with children dying on our doorstep. We can't forget That most of our ancestors were refugees and immigrated. We can't allow racism and xenophobia to destroy our common principles, " - said Tsipras.
He made the initiative to do during the UN mechanism for resettlement from Syria's neighbour countries and direct support for countries hosting immigrants, and the destruction of networks trafficking in people.
"in the Syrian Arab Republic, We must act decisively in the interests of reconciliation and a political settlement to pave the way for democratic transition in the Syrian leadership, as envisaged in the Geneva communiqu?. In this context, We support the proposals aimed at involving all in the decision of having the interest of international and regional actors, " said Tsipras.
in Libya, Greece fully supports the efforts of the UN and welcomed the successful conclusion of negotiations and the exchange of political opinions.
"As for Ukraine, We support the territorial integrity, independence and sovereignty within its internationally recognized borders. We appreciate the efforts of Channel groups and the role of the OSCE in preventing the spiral of militarization in the area. We call upon the signatories of the Minsk agreement to implement it fully, " he said
Tsipras expressed his deep concern about the growth of jihadism, which must be fought vigorously.
The Greek Premier also said the solution of the Cyprus problem, the establishment of confidence-building measures between Greece and Turkey, as well as with the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
