|World needs no policing by a few States – President at UNGA|
|Friday, 27 September 2013|
The world needs no policing by a few States, particularly when the UN is mandated to ensure international security, through multilateral engagement, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said yesterday.
Addressing the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly, President Rajapaksa said it is disturbing to observe the growing trend in the international arena, of interference by some, in the internal matters of developing countries, in the guise of security, and as guardians of human rights.
He asked whether such movements have led to better stability in these countries, or produced different results, due to inappropriate external factors.
"In fact, the positive outcomes envisaged by those responsible have not come to pass, but indeed contributed to making those countries unstable," the President told the UN General Assembly.
He pointed out that the turmoil results from attempts to impose a type of democracy, upon countries with significantly different cultures, values and history and said the trend needs to be arrested, as it has now extended into areas, detrimental to the wellbeing of populations.
