7:06 am

>> live in a new york city and the united nations, president obama addressing the general assembly. >> it is an honor to be here today. i would like to talk to you about a subject that is at the heart of the united nations, the pursuit of peace in an imperfect world. war and conflict have been with us since good beginning of civilization. in the first part of the twentieth century the advance of modern weaponry lead to death on a staggering scale and was this killing that compelled the founders of this body to build an institution that was focused not just on and one award but on others. a union of sovereign and procedure prevents conflict while also addressing its
7:12 am
causes. no american it did more to pursue this objective then president franklin roosevelt. he knew that a victory in a war was not enough. as he said at one of the very first meetings during the founding of the united nations, we have got to make not nearly piece, but a piece that will last. the men and women who build this institution understood that peace is more than the absence of war. a lasting peace for nations and individuals. it depends on a sense of justice and opportunity. dignity and freedom. it depends on struggle and sacrifice, on a compromise
7:13 am
and on a sense of common humanity. one delegate to the san francisco conference that led to the creation of the united nations put it well. many people, she said, have talked as if all that has to be done to get peace was to say loudly and frequently that we love peace and heat wore. now, we have learned that no matter how much we love peace and heat wore we cannot avoid having war brought upon us if there are compulsions and other parts of the world. the fact is, peace is hard. our people demand it. over nearly seven decades the united nations have helped divert a third world war. we still live in a world
7:14 am
scarred by conflict. it is plagued by poverty. even as we proclaim our love for peace and hatred of war, there are still convulsions in our world that in dangerous all. i took office at a time when there were two wars in the united states. war over the violent extremists bedrooms into the war in the first place. osama bin laden's, his al-qaeda organization remains at large. today, we set a new direction. at the end of this year america's military operation in a rock will be over. we'll have a normal relationship with a sovereign nation that is a member of the community of nations. as we end of the
7:15 am
war in iraq the united states and our coalition partners have begun a transition in afghanistan. we are drawing down our own forces while building and enduring partnership with the afghan people. but there be no doubt, the tide of war is receding. moreover we are
7:16 am
poised to end of these wars from a position of strength. 10 years ago there was an open wound and twisted steel, a broken heart and the center of this city. today, as a new tower is rising at ground zero, it symbolizes a new york's renewal even as al-qaeda is under more pressure than ever before. his leadership has been degraded. osama has been a lot of, a man that murdered out thousands of people from dozens of countries will never in danger the piece of the world again. today we stand at a crossroads with a
7:17 am
chance to move decisively in the direction of peace. to do so, we must return to the wisdom of those who created this institution. the united nations' founding charter calls upon us to unite our strength to maintain international peace and security. the universal declaration of human rights reminds us that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and human rights. believes in the responsibility of states and the rights of men and women. in that effort, we have reason to hope. this is but a time of extraordinary transformation. more
7:18 am
individuals are claiming the universal right to live in freedom and dignity. the prospect of a successful referendum in south sudan was in doubt that the international community under k those positions to negotiate an agreement and give south sudan determination. last summer, as a new flag went ups po, former soldiers laid down their arms, men and women wept with joy and children finally to the promise of looking for a future that they will shake. one year ago, the people of approached a landmark election. when the incumbent lost in refused to accept the results the world refused to look the other way. u.n. peacekeepers were
7:19 am
harassed but they did not leave their posts. the security council led by the united states, nigeria and france came together to support the will of the people and called the war is now governed by the man who was elected to lead. one year ago the hopes of the people of to the show were repressed but they chose the dignity of peaceful protest over the role of an iron fist. a vendor to lead a spark that took his own life. in the face of a crackdown students spelled out the word freedom, the balance of fear shifted from the ruler to those that he ruled. one step closer to
7:20 am
the democracy that they deserve. one year ago egypt had known one president for nearly 30 years but for 18 days the eyes of the world were glued to egypt were egyptians were all walks of life, men and women, young and old, muslim and christian demanded the universal rights we saw in those protesters the moral force of nonviolence that has with the world from deli to warsaw and south africa. we knew that change had come to egypt and to the arab world one year ago, the people of libya were ruled by the world's longest serving dictator. day after
7:21 am
day, and the face of bullets and bombs the libyan people refuse to give back freedom. when they were threatened with the kind of mass atrocity that often went unchallenged in the last century, the united nations lived up to its charter. the security council authorized all necessary measures to prevent. the arab league called for this effort. the arab nation joined a nato led coalition halted gaddafi forces in their tracks. in the month that followed, the will of the coalition proved impregnable. the will of the libyan people could not be
7:22 am
delighted. 42 years of tyranny was ended in six months. from tripoli to misrata to been ghazi to date, libya is free. yesterday the leaders of the new libya took their rightful place beside us and this week united states is reopening its embassy in tripoli. this is how the international community is supposed to work. the debt
7:23 am
off the regime is over. holly and will bar are no longer in power. osama bin laden is gone. the idea that change can only be gone through violence has been buried with him. something is happening in our world. the way things have been is not the way that they will be. the humiliating grip of corruption is being pried open. dictators are unnoticed. technology's cutting power into the hands of the people. these are delivering a powerful rebuke to dictatorship in rejecting the life that some races, some people, some religions or ethnicities did not desire democracy. the promised written down on paper, all human beings are
7:24 am
born free and equal in dignity and rights is closer at hand. let us remember that peace is hard progress can be reversed, prosperity comes slowly societies can split apart the measure of our success must be with people can live in a sustained freedom, dignity and security. the united nations and its members of state must do their part to support those basic aspirations and we have more work to do. in a run we have seen the government refuses to recognize the rights of its own people. as we meet here today men, women and
7:25 am
children are being tortured, detained and murder. thousands have been killed, many during the holy time of ramadan. thousands more have poured across the borders of syria. the syrian people have shown dignity and courage in their pursuit of justice processing peacefully, standing silently in the street and dying for the same values that this institution is supposed to stand for. the question for us is clear we stand with the syrian people or with their oppressors? already the united states has imposed strong sanctions on syria's leaders, we supported a transfer of power in response to the syrian people. perhaps many of our allies have joined in this effort. for the sake of syria, the peace and security of the world we
7:26 am
must speak with one voice there is no excuse for inaction. now is the time the united nations security council to sanction the syrian regime and to stand with the syrian people. throughout the region we will have to respond to the calls for change in yemen, men and women and children gathered by the thousands in towns and cities squares with the hope that their determination and spill the blood will prevail over a corrupt system. america supports those aspirations. we must work with yemen's neighbors and our partners around world to seek a pact that allows for a peaceful transition of power from president solomon and and a movement to fair and free elections as soon as possible. america is a close
7:27 am
friend of bahrain. we want a peaceful change. we believe the patriotism that binds by iranians will meet more powerful than the forces that tear apart. it will be hard but it is possible each nation must are its own course of the fill the aspirations of its people. america will always stand up for the universal rights that were embraced by this assembly. those rights depends on elections that are free and fair, on governments that are transparent and accountable, respect for the rights of women and minorities.
7:28 am
justice that is equal and fair that is what our people deserve. those are the elements of peace that can last. more over the united states will continue to support the nations that transition into democracy with greater trade and investments of that freedom is followed by opportunity we will pursue a deeper engagement with governments and also civil society, students, entrepreneur wars, political parties and the press we have banned the those who abuse human rights from travelling to our calf. we have sanctioned to those that trample on human rights abroad and we will always serve as a voice for those who have been silenced. i know that this week, for many of us there is one
7:29 am
issue that stands as a test for these principles, a test for american foreign policy, that is the conflict between the israelis and palestinians one year ago i stood at this podium and i called for an independent palestine i believed then and i believed now that the palestinian people deserve a state of their own but what i also said is that a genuine peace can only be realized between the israelis and palestinians themselves one year later despite extensive efforts by america and others the parties have not reached their differences. faced with this stalemate i put forward a new basis for negotiations in may of this
7:30 am
year that basis is clear, it is well known to all of us here, israelis must know that any agreement provides assurances for their security, palestinians deserve to know the territorial basis of their states i know that many are frustrated by the lack of progress and i assure you, so am i. hot of the question is not a goal that we seek, the question is how do we reach that goal i am convinced that there is no shortcut to the end of a conflict that has endured for decades. it is not easy, if it was that easy would have been accomplished by
7:31 am
now. ultimately it is the israelis and palestinians who must live side-by-side. ultimately it is the israelis and palestinians who must reach an agreement on the issues that divide them on borders and security, refugees and jerusalem. ultimately peace depends upon a compromise among people who must live together long after our speeches are over long after our boats have been tallied, that is the lesson of northern ireland's. that is the lesson into don for a negotiated settlement led to an independent state that is and will be the parent of a palestinian state. we seek a future where palestinians live in a sovereign state of
7:32 am
their own with no limit to what they can achieve there is no question that palestinians have seen that vision delayed for too long it is precisely because we believe so slot america has invested so much time and effort in the building of a palestinian state and the negotiations that can deliver a palestinian state understand this as well america's commitment to israel's security is unshakable our friendship with israel is deep and enduring and so we believe that any lasting peace must knowledge of the real security concerns that israel faces every day. let us be honest, israel is surrounded by neighbors that have waged repeated wars
7:33 am
against them. israeli citizens have been killed by rockets fired at their houses and a suicide bombs on their buses. israel's children, aged knowing that your of the region of our children are taught to hate them israel as a small country of 8 million people. they look out at the world where leaders of much larger nations threatened to wipe off the map. the jewish people carry the burden of centuries of exile and persecution and fresh memories of knowing that 6 million people were killed simply because of who they work. those are facts. they cannot be denied. the jewish people have forced a successful state in their historic homeland. israel deserves recognition. in deserts normal relations with its neighbors. friends
7:34 am
of the palestinians do them no favors by ignoring this true just as friends of israel must recognize the need to pursue a to state resolution, israel next to an independent palestine. >> we are following the president's speech at the united nations general assembly. the president blasting ron and syria on human rights violations talking about the role of the u.s. and iraq and afghanistan and now talking about israel and palestine and pushing for peace as the palestinian president is trying to push the u.n. security council to recognize palestinian statehood. we will be right back as the kron 4 morning news continues.
