In Geneva, Sri Lanka Spins LLRC But Sent Silva To UN, Burying Petrie Report

UNITED NATIONS, November 1 -- When Sri Lanka appeared Thursday for its Universal Periodic Review in UNITED NATIONS, November 1 -- When Sri Lanka appeared Thursday for its Universal Periodic Review in Geneva, countries that asked to speak were given 72 seconds each. Defenders of Sri Lanka included Belarus, North Korea, Iran and Turkey -- this last on the theory that it takes toughness to fight terrorism. But killing 40000 civilians? That's the figure cited by the UN, most recently by the Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary and Arbitrary Executions Christof Heyns when Inner City Press asked him last week about his action on videos depicting executions of prisoners by the Sri Lankan military. During the speed-speeches there are contradictions and ironies everywhere. Qatar, which so loudly calls for accountability in Syria, didn't bring it up on Sri Lanka. Sudan said it sympathizes with Sri Lanka on armed conflict. But Sudanese president Omar al Bashir was indicted by the International Criminal Court for Darfur. The Security Council never official met on, much less about an ICC referral, about Sri Lanka. Length: 00:01:13

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has highlighted the ideals of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), calli UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has highlighted the ideals of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), calling for a global campaign for the establishment of "peace and justice." "We should defend the ideals of the movement, which are peace and equality, and make efforts for the realization of these ideals," said Ban addressing the opening ceremony of the 16th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in Tehran on Thursday. He lauded the NAM as a key element for maintaining global peace and noted that the movement should work hand in hand with the UN to ensure that global institutions including the Security Council reflect the realities and dynamics of today's world. The meeting of the NAM heads of state began in Tehran on Thursday with an inaugural speech by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei. NAM, an international organization with 120 member states, is considered as not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc. It represents nearly two-thirds of the UN members.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon Inciting War Against Syria To Fulfill NATO Plans Of Conquer

After reading or listening the statements on Syria by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, After reading or listening the statements on Syria by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, the notion arises that far from being impartial, the United Nations Organization is in fact two organisms - one, a humanitarian institution to pull the wool over our eyes and the other, to pander to the geo-political caprices of its master, in whose house it is a guest and a hostage. If the United Nations Secretary-General were totally impartial, if the UN Secretary-general respected his position and the institution he represents, there would be as many declarations from him denouncing the war crimes and breaches of international law by the FUKUS-Axis (France, UK, US and Israel) as there are deriding their enemies, as was the case against Libya, as is the case against Syria. However, as one may have expected, this is not the case. His constant rebuttals and accusations against the Government of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya rang loud and clear, as it tried to defend itself and its people against murderous gangs of NATO backed thugs - torturers, murderers, rapists, racists, arsonists, looters, thieves, sodomists and serial sexual abusers. However, where was he when the FUKUS-Axis was strafing the Libyan water supply, to "break the backs" of the civilians and deprive families with babies of drinking and bathing water, in the North African mid-Summer? Where was he when the FUKUS-Axis was placing special troops on the ground, despite the terms of the UNSC Resolutions 1970 and 1973 ... Length: 00:06:46

UN Security Council fails to pass resolution on Syria CNN com

UN Security Council fails to pass resolution on Syria February 4, 2012 -- Updated 1855 GMT (0255 HKT UN Security Council fails to pass resolution on Syria February 4, 2012 -- Updated 1855 GMT (0255 HKT) United Nations (CNN) -- As international anger grows over reports of mass carnage at the hands of the Syrian regime, a UN Security Council draft resolution condemning Syria failed to be adopted Saturday after veto-wielding members Russia and China voted against it. Ambassadors from the other permanent members of the council -- the United States, France, and the United Kingdom -- said they were furious at Russia and China for failing to halt the worsening, bloody violence that has consumed the Middle Eastern nation. Thirteen Security Council members voted in favor of the resolution. The Local Coordination Committees, a Syrian opposition group, said 90 people had been killed in Syria on Saturday, including 61 in Homs, 10 in Idlib, and 19 in a Damascus suburb. In a strongly worded statement before the vote, US President Barack Obama said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has lost all legitimacy and that the international community "must work to protect the Syrian people from this abhorrent brutality." He pointed the finger directly at al-Assad and what he called his "killing machine." UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the vote was a lost opportunity to halt the violence. The resolution would have demanded that al-Assad stop the killing and answer international calls aimed at finding a Syrian-led solution to the crisis. British Foreign Secretary William Hague said the ... Length: 00:01:42

Meeting with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and President Bush (2007)

thefilmarchive.org January 16, 2007 Ban Ki-moon (Hangul: 반기문, Hanja: 潘基文; born 13 June 1 thefilmarchive.org January 16, 2007 Ban Ki-moon (Hangul: 반기문, Hanja: 潘基文; born 13 June 1944) is the eighth and current Secretary-General of the United Nations, after succeeding Kofi Annan in 2007. Before going on to be Secretary-General, Ban was a career diplomat in South Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and in the United Nations. He entered diplomatic service the year he graduated from university, accepting his first post in New Delhi, India. In the foreign ministry he established a reputation for modesty and competence. Ban was the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Korea from January 2004 to November 2006. In February 2006, he began to campaign for the office of Secretary-General. Ban was initially considered to be a long shot for the office. As foreign minister of South Korea, however, he was able to travel to all of the countries that were members of the United Nations Security Council, a maneuver that turned him into the front runner. On 11 October 2006, he was elected to be the eighth Secretary-General by the United Nations General Assembly and officially succeeded Annan on 1 January 2007. Ban has led several major reforms regarding peacekeeping and UN employment practices. Diplomatically, Ban has taken particularly strong views on Darfur, where he helped persuade Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir to allow peacekeeping troops to enter Sudan; and on global warming, pressing the issue repeatedly with former US President George W. Bush. Ban has received ... Length: 00:02:31

West wants to topple ASSAD then topple IRAN. CHINA & RUSSIA Veto UN Council - Build up to WW3?

West wants to topple ASSAD then topple IRAN. CHINA & RUSSIA Veto UN Council - Build up to WW3? Russi West wants to topple ASSAD then topple IRAN. CHINA & RUSSIA Veto UN Council - Build up to WW3? Russia and China have vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution that threatened Syria with more sanctions. It was the third time in nine months that Russia and China used their powers as permanent members of the 15-nation council to block resolutions on Syria. There were 11 votes in favor of the resolution. Russia and China voted against it, while South Africa and Pakistan abstained from voting. Addressing the council, Russian Representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin accused the Western members of the UNSC of attempting to "fan the flames of confrontation in the Security Council." "The draft resolution which was voted on was biased. The threat of sanctions was leveled exclusively at the government of Syria, and does not reflect the realities in the country today. It's especially ambiguous in light of what happened with the grave terrorist attack that took place in Damascus", Churkin added. British Foreign Secretary William Hague, who drafted the resolution, earlier said the worsening crisis confirmed "the urgent need for a Chapter 7 resolution of the UN Security Council on Syria." Chapter 7 allows the 15-member council to authorize actions ranging from diplomatic and economic sanctions to military intervention. US officials have said they are talking about sanctions on Syria, not military intervention, but Russia and China strongly believe allowing such a resolution to ... Length: 00:11:22
