Davutoglu stresses the need for revamped global political order
The global political system, especially the United Nations, needs to be redefined in line with changes in the global political balances and the positions of regional players, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said yesterday. Speaking to reporters following a meeting with Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Rafi al-Issawi in Ankara, Davutoglu underlined the need to restructure the UN. Stating that the body's current structure, and particularly the hierarchical UN Security Council, is a relic of the postwar years, Davutoglu said, "Global political balances and the positions of the regional players have changed. It is very natural that a global order unable to manage regional crises now faces deadlocks on many global fronts. Now we face the need to restructure the global political system and particularly the UN." Many of the small ethnic crises of the 1990s flared into global crises in the new millennium, Davutoglu said, urging all global actors to make plans for the decades to come.
