ADDRESS BY H.E. ABDULLAH GÜL,PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF TURKEY,AT THE GENERAL DEBATE OF THE 38
TH
SESSION OFTHE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY(NEW YORK/USA, 24 SEPTEMBER 2013)
Mr. President,Mr. Secretary General,Excellencies,I wish to start by extending our sincere congratulationsto you, Dr. John Ashe, on your assumption of thePresidency of the Sixty-Eighth Session of the UNGeneral Assembly.--As we gathered here for this historic meeting, the newsof terrorist attacks in Kenya, Iraq and Pakistan havedeeply saddened us all. We condemn these attacks in thestrongest possible terms. At this hour of grief and greatsorrow, our thoughts and prayers are with the familiesof the deceased.At the dawn of the 21st century, we had every reason tobe optimistic about the future.--

We saw the end of Cold War hostilities, and the moralbalance of the world shifted towards the pursuit of peace.--A lasting peace is far more than the mere absence of war.-- We, the international community, understood theimperative of working together for a stable worldorder.--We maintained our strong commitment to the universalprinciples of the United Nations system.--And, in a spirit of solidarity and cooperation, wedeveloped effective international responses to thescourge of terrorism.--Yet, the most profound crises of our times are emergingfrom internal conflicts.--Such conflicts have beenincreasing in both frequency and magnitude.--

They are largely driven by the problem of politicallegitimacy, which leads the governed to withhold theirconsent, and limits the prospects for domestic order.--Leaders without political legitimacy share a commondelusion: instead of reading the future and leadingtransformation, they believe they can buy time withirresponsibleactions against their own people.--Eventually, these domestic conflicts escalate into civilwars, such as the tragedy we are witnessing in Syria.--The actions of these leaders thus have implications forpeace and security beyond their own borders.--If some leaders insist on defining their security in a waythat inflicts insecurity upon other nations, there can beno collective security.--
