th
General Assembly of the United NationsNew York City24 September, 2010
Mr. President:Allow me to convey the greetings of the Filipino people toyou and the delegates gathered for the 65th session of theUN General Assembly.The United Nations was founded on the belief that incollective action lies collective security. It is when nationsreach across their borders that the immense problems of ourage begin to be manageable.In a world that has become increasingly globalized, thechallenges that we face have become globalized as well.Climate change; pandemics; terrorism and weapons of massdestruction; transnational organized crime such as humantrafficking and the illicit drug trade; the continuingvulnerability of migrants, women, persons with disabilities,and the poor; and the challenges posed by increasinglyinterconnected economies all call for a further strengtheningof international cooperation.
 
3All of us here, representing our respective nations, arestewards entrusted with the well-being of our respectivepeoples. We are also called to be responsible andresponsive members of the community of nations. Clearly,we are already aware that the problem of one poses aproblem for all. Any solution, then, depends on usrecognizing that each of our nations does not exist in avacuum, but rather, in an increasingly interdependent globalmilieu.The central revelation here is that for humanity to progress,all nations must progress as one. The quest for universalhuman dignity should not be defined by geographical, racial,or cultural boundaries, nor should it be set back by ourdesires to move our own nations forward. Global progressmeans equitable progress.The industrialized nations of the world can look with pride onthe living standards their peoples enjoy. But, as one of my
distinguished predecessors once said, “Those who have lessin life should have more in law.” This basic principle of social
 justice is also the most basic humanitarian challenge of ourtimes. The wealth of nations must become an instrument tomove the world further along the straight and righteous pathof compassion and communal responsibility.The message is clear: there are those who need help, andacting with compassion toward those who need help is aresponse that is both humane and necessary.
