Today, with our security at home affected by instability, violence, disease, or failed states in far corners of the world, President Obama has affirmed America’s commitment to the United Nations as an indispensable, if imperfect, institution for advancing our security and well-being in the 21st century. He has made it clear that we must pursue a national security strategy that builds strong international partnerships to tackle global challenges through the integration of all aspects of American power – military and diplomatic; economic and legal; cultural and moral. The goal of our diplomacy at the United Nations is to make it a more perfect forum to address the most pressing global challenges: to promote peace and development, to advance democracy, and to strengthen respect for human rights.
