 Remarks at the 60th United Nations General Assembly
As President Bush said on Wednesday, "The United Nations must stand for integrity, and live by the high standards it sets for others." For the United Nations to champion democracy more legitimately, we must increase the transparency and accountability of this institution.
The final purpose of the United Nations -- as the Charter states -- is "to be a center for harmonizing the actions of nations in the attainment of … common ends." In 1945, the world's leaders joined together to build an institutional partnership that could address the shared challenges of their time.
The third purpose of the United Nations is "to achieve international cooperation in solving international problems." In 1945, the fear was that strong, aggressive states -- eager and able to expand their frontiers with force -- would be the primary cause of international problems.
