One Response to “Is the UN at 70 fit for purpose? Some Reflections .. Text of my Speech at ORF today”

    Dear Sir,

    I am absolutely convinced with your article that today the United Nations has become only an International NGO due to the geopolitics prevalent in the Security Council. The dream of the UN makers to see it as a true international organisation has shattered.However, I also wonder that why the United Nations General Assembly has not been invoking “the uniting for peace” resolution under which it assumed power to send peace inforcement forces in 1950. I am also not very optimistic regarding the Security Council reforms in near future because of logjam and mutual rivalry between G4 nations and Coffee Club. Therefore, I agree with your observations in this article. Wish for the betterment of the UN.
