9:06 pm
the prospect of environmental degradation as well as economic damage is simply too much to bear they are really counting on the international community's efforts to enforce the new sets of sanctions that have just been imposed in the last five to six weeks even though they very much appreciate that the u.s. is willing to come to their defense if it were necessary. ok rosa jordan live there at the united nations in new york let's just set the scene for you here at the u.n. general assembly in new york we know that the president. has just finished speaking and next up it is due to be the a man tom had been how much. he's now getting up and about to take his place at the podium. monitor him in the name of god gracious most masterful and honorable audience it gives me great pleasure to congratulate exacts and see mr america's love life strike and its uming the presidency of the

9:08 pm
disputes by peaceful means is still being addressed isn't at this hard a can nonbinding proposal perhaps the time has come to impose darren again negotiations as a basis for resolving disputes through concluding an international convention on settling disputes between states by peaceful means. in this context and after a major event such as world war two room wall and room d. in the balkans over the last century the danger of the impunity after perpetrators of crimes against humanity and crimes of genocide has come dark again to threaten humanity. it has become the rule and not an exception. because the international legitimacy is subjected to political leverage to the interests of the axioms and the dictations of the force on the ground which pretends that the long
9:09 pm
course may supersede the force of law in our view the major powers should not adopt one of two extreme positions either the direct occupation of countries to impose their will in policy or standing ideally on turning a blind eye to war as a genocide and crimes against humanity perpetrated by a fascist despotic regime or they ignore in the continuous repression of people on their occupation by the occupying state. lately there is a growing standards people on the repression are facing their fate alone as if the international arena is governed by the law of jungle as if that country under threat will have to stand on their own relying on their alliances and relations in the absence of the system to implement the provisions of international
9:10 pm
law and the binding conventions and charters mr president we commend the theme of this session focusing on people striving for peace and a decent life for all on a sustainable planet. in this context i call upon the government of the republic of the union of myanmar and the international community to assume their legal and moral responsibility and take the necessary measures to stop the violence against their hunger minority providing them with protection and repatriating the displaced to their homeland preventing sic tarion or ethnic discrimination against this minority and ensuring that they have their full legitimate rights as full fledged. citizens we urge all states to provide humanitarian assistance to their hair mr president every time i stand here i speak in favor of constructive international
9:11 pm
cooperation just beside the rights of people and their occupation as well as those who are subjected to crimes against humanity or those under siege this time i stand before you while my country and my people are subjected to a continuing and unjust blockade imposed since june the fifth by the neighboring countries the bloke eight involves all aspects of life including severing family ties qatar is currently managing successfully its livelihood economy development plans and its outreach to the outside world thanks to sea and air routes that are not under the control of these countries. the blockade was imposed abruptly and without warning prompting counter race to considerate kind of betrayal it seems that those who have planned and implemented
9:12 pm
it had envisaged that their move would cause a shocking in direct impact that will bring the state of qatar takes nina on to capital a to a total guardianship imposed upon it and what is worse the blockade schemers found it necessary to rely on fabricated cords attributed to me which they posted on the website of qatar news agency after hacking it the. contract media of these countries was ready to loan share an all out campaign of incitement prepared in advance in which all values morals and norms were breach. the truth was infringed upon by a torrent of line as farms are still being spent on sparingly on the machine faking and disseminating fabrications in the hope of fooling people by
9:13 pm
distorting the truth with mere lines this time the exposure of the hacking and falsification of coal to their mirror of a sovereign state the blockade in countries did not that now nor apologize for lying but rather intensified their campaign in the hope that the blockade would code a cumulative effect on the economy and the society of my country after it failed to bring about any direct impact on. the perpetrators of the hacking and the falsification of the courts have committed an assault against a submarine state that the crime was deliberately committed for political aims and was followed by a list of political dictations which prejudice sovereignty they called worldwide astonishment. this disgraceful act has once again raised international cleary's about digital security and the unruliness in cyber crime and electronic
9:14 pm

9:33 pm
threat can possibly be resolved by leaving it to play out on its own. we all have to shoulder the responsibility for a safer more prosperity is who old. it is with this understanding that turkey is pursuing and enterprising and humanitarian foreign policy honorable mr president that gets the syrian conflict and its seventh year this conflict has created deep wounds in the country the region the whole world has lost in syria whole civilization is being and he laid it together with so really innocent children. destroying this country and being paid by him stable oppression terrorism spreads like a cancer across borders. the people of syria who took action demanding
9:34 pm
democracy freedom justice and a bright future fortunately left alone by the international community. turkey. could not remain indifferent to this tragedy of these people. as our brothers and sisters regardless of their original creed to whom we are connected with deep historical ties. since the outbreak of the conflict in syria in this being of two thousand and eleven we have exerted every kind of humanitarian and political effort to solve the problem and we will continue to do so. we are currently hosting more than three million syrians and more than two hundred thousand iraqis in our country. we have launched together with russia and iran the us town of meetings with the participation of all
9:35 pm
conflicting parties in an attempt to establish a permanent cease fire and peace in the country. following our initiatives also the geneva a process which was blocked for a long time has been revived. we are putting into practice now a new plan to ensure the security off the region in syria within the framework of the agreement reached in astana. turkey would be supportive of every step towards the construction of a stable and prosperous syria based on the territorial integrity of the country and respect for democratic demands of its people dear friends we have taken we will continue to take all kinds of measures for those who came to our country with the outbreak of the syrian crisis to stem the influx of refugees into europe we made all the needs of these people from shelter to food and clothing from health
9:36 pm
care to education standards that are appreciated by everyone who is it our country . but i would like to underscore that we have not received socially support from the international community especially from the european union for the efforts that we have been carrying out. the expenditure. public institutions of our civil society organizations and people in order to meet the needs of those living in the camps and cities in turkey have so far exceeded thirty billion us dollars. in turn the european union has sent only eight hundred twenty million euros out of the three billion plus three billion euros that they in fact promised. total assistance from the international community through the united
9:37 pm
nations remains around five hundred twenty million dollars these do not come into our budget mind you. this money goes and they are intended for to serious are should point out. they are intended for the serious goes to none of them none of this money goes into turkey's budget this money is given to those in need by the relief agencies through development institutions of the united nations mind you. before the whole world here i hear called on the countries and international organizations which have put all their boards on all of the three point two million people on turkish shoulders i call on them to fulfill the promises they have might in fact turkey is a country that carries on to monetary and development assistance activities around
9:38 pm
the world not only do we welcome those who come to our own our country bot. through. which is a turkish cooperation and coordination agency through the disaster and management authority of turkey through the turkish red crescent and various other civil society organizations we rush to the help of all those who are suffering and who are under oppression regardless of which part of the world they may be for example through its awfully institutions and say it was suicide organizations turkey has spent a billion u.s. dollars for the reconstruction of so my self are the work that we carry out under exults that we have achieved in so maybe i would indeed so done example for similar efforts according to confirmed o.e.c.d. statistics with six billion dollars so humanitarian aid in two thousand and sixteen turkey around as the world's second largest donor top contributors
9:39 pm
in terms of. yet turkey is the seventeenth largest economy of the world. having expand. point eight percent of its national income for humanitarian assistance turkey is one of the six countries that could meet the un target so as you see turkey is working real hard towards its sus dana world which is the main message of this general assembly and we will continue in the coming days with the same concentration in mind. honorable mr president as. turkey is engaged in an intensified to against the bloody terrorist organizations of the region such as. and p k k norrish by the instability in syria and
9:40 pm
iraq additionally our fight against the. terrorist organization which attempt to change the legitimate democratic regime of turkey by a bloody coup is also ongoing. we have recovered two hundred forty three residential areas and the land which is larger than two thousand square kilometers thanks to the operation euphrates shield. initiated in syria following the attacks of on our borders we have neutralized almost three thousand militants during that operation. around long hundred thousand syrians returned resettled in the region that we cleaned up from the terrorists the operation you afraid to share is the single greatest accomplishment against since its ok patient off the region i
9:41 pm
must highlight the following fact in your presence most of the groups and forces claiming that to fight against dietician the region in fact have no such real purpose these groups and forces used as a pretext to just realize their own agenda us the efforts by p u y d p g to change the demographic structure in the region it has captured to seize the property of the people to kill or exile the ones who stand against it all of these things form a crime against humanity. if the fight against guys is not conducted on a digital much basis it would be and i won't double for the world to come on their death threat of a new like entity similar approaches exist in iran as well. iraq also needs the compromises to be reached on the basis of territorial integrity underlies ation of the ideals to build
9:42 pm
a common future. steps such as the mounts for independence that can cause new crises and conflicts in the region must be avoided. we here call on the iraqi kurdish regional government to abort the initiative that they have launched in that direction. ignoring the clear undetermined songs of turkey in this matter may lead to a process that shall deprive the iraqi kurdish regional government the opportunities they currently enjoy. we all should work on building tranquility peace security and stable data in the region instead of sparking new york conflicts . esteemed mr president your delegates beside syria and iraq we are also close we are following the regions such as libya and yemen where terrorist organizations are trying to establish influence the international community's
9:43 pm
support to the legitimate government in libya shall contribute significantly to the stable hitty of the country. it should be kept in mind that if the mistakes made in syria and iraq are repeated in libya then that will expose the whole world particularly europe to a much greater threats. and under issues that turkey. placed delegates on is the immediate resolution off the conflict which has erupted in the gulf region. we believe that the sanctions negatively affecting the living conditions off the qatari people should first of all be lifted. the support for the mediation efforts of the emir of kuwait. for the resolution of the crisis our hope is that these efforts would yield
9:44 pm
a positive result. we also that saudi arabia whom we see as the elder brother of the gulf region would show is sincere willing for the resolution of this issue. another important problem is the issue of palestine which we consider to be the gaping wound of the world and by extension the preservation of the historical status. and. should if i either the temple mount. the grasses in her amish if in july has demonstrated that the sensitivity off the issue of. the continuation off the peace process there can only be possible on the conversation that is right immediately stops illegal settlement activities and take steps towards a two state solution. so in this context i call on the international community to support our palestinian brothers sons sisters in eastern jerusalem the west bank
9:45 pm
and gaza. as their struggle for an independent. palestinian state. despite the current absence of conflict the balkans is another potential crisis another potential crisis which still faces serious challenges. and for this reason we attach great importance to the integration of balkan countries with the tick institutions. turkey will continue to do its part for peace stable. to prevail in this exceptional part of the world. the territorial integrity of john and. for regional stable it in southern caucasus. so we need to work harder for the resolution off the conflicts in the. up. and solve. we should never forget that each crisis that we ignore
9:46 pm
today has the potential to spark a regional and he wanted global crisis tomorrow in this framework. i would also like to underline that we are against all sorts of nuclear weapons which have come to increasingly the world agenda in recent days. it's obvious that we could not overcome such problems on this we completely cleans the world from the scorch of nuclear weapons. we are saddened by the fact that the comprehensive negotiation process started in two thousand and eight has ended due to the incomprehensible snows of the greek cypriots. we will do our best to ensure that the natural resources discovered in the eastern
9:47 pm
mediterranean in recent years will serve to peace stable. the region. we are ready to consider proposals for a solution that respect the rights of turkish cypriots. is deemed to mr president to your delegates. while struggling with all these global and regional problems our world was shocked once again by decide new stuff from myanmar if you weeks ago the muslim community in the racan region off me on mark is being subjected to almost nichkhun i'm single with probably good to terrorist acts as a predicts. the religious off the ruling go muslims who have already been there being in extreme poverty and misery and deprived of their citizenship rights are burnt down as hundreds of thousands of people are forced to migrate from the region
9:48 pm
and the country. the camps in bangladesh to which the people migrating from the region are diverted those camps are not in a position to fulfill even the minimum humanitarian needs as it is the case in syria the international community has not given a good account of itself regarding the humanitarian plight which muslims have been exposed to. if this strategy in myanmar is not stopped the history of humanity will face the embarrassment of another darks day. what is most important is to ensure that they are growing up people who have taken refuge outside their country especially in bangladesh maintain their lives in safety peace and welfare on their own land where they have lived for centuries. turkey is and every dissolution of this crisis as well recently on the occasion of a meeting on i see the organization of islamic cooperation we had
9:49 pm
a special session on that matter in astana the capital of because i can stand with the participating countries. my wife my song and ministers who visited the camps in bangladesh immediately after the latest crisis personally witnessed the humanitarian plight. and the clothing food and other humanitarian aid was provided and we are now looking into the second phase of such eight. we will today hold the meeting of the organization of. the islamic cooperation contact group on royal at the premises of the united nations this afternoon in fact. as i said my vive my son and our ministers and some other n.g.o.s of turkey. want there
9:50 pm
to come which is the official aid organization of turkey went there for eight to go is the only officially aiding organization. the turkish red crescent and other n.g.o.s they continue their activities to the lower humanitarian aid to the raw kind muslims in myanmar if concerned countries provide the necessary means we would like to continue assistance activities in a more comprehensive way. and. i discussed these issues with the secretary general of the united nations is excellent. we are not preparing ourselves for further steps is deemed to mr president there that it gets all the is that while moments under humanitarian tragedies. the relevance of far it pealed for the restructuring of the un especially the security council symbolized. the world is
9:51 pm
bigger than five. gathered. here under this rule of three needs to understand that it is really late for us to reform the security council so under this roof we are representing the whole world. if we can not display the will to prevent the murders spark terrorist organizations and humanitarian crisis and cravings. everyone will search for their own ways to help themselves on their own. if this on their standing prevails then the world will be dragged into a new storm of cruelty. if western countries do not prevent tendencies such as. racism and in lawsuit against islam. if the country is in the crisis ridden regions do not demonstrate the decisive will to fight terrorist organizations and poverty. if you do not cooperate all of us with one another on
9:52 pm
