UN must reform to resolve conflicts, lift people out of misery, says PM

Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin says the UN must respond to some of the most glaring problems the world is facing.

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin says he believes the United Nations must be reformed to improve the aspect of resolving conflicts around the world and lifting people out of their suffering.

In his maiden address, virtually, at the UN General Assembly this morning (Malaysian time), Muhyiddin said the UN has done well in promoting social and economic development but has somewhat failed to “save succeeding generations from the scourge of war”.

He said the world body now, more than ever, has to be better equipped with the continued support of member states to respond to some of the most glaring problems the world is facing.

The time is right for the UN to take stock of its achievements, improve on its weaknesses and remove all obstacles that prevent its continued progress, he said.

On Covid-19, Muhyiddin said the UN must ensure that a vaccine, once found, is accessible to all nations and peoples without any discrimination.
