Davutoglu: World political order must be more multilateral
The world political order must be more multilateral and participatory, and must represent all humanity, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said yesterday. “We don’t want to have political hierarchy in the world, where certain countries, certain nations, have more to say on the future of political order in the coming decades and centuries,” Davutoglu said. “We want to have more participation, more multi-lateralism, and more representation at a global political level.” The foreign minister made his remarks in a speech at the opening ceremony of the Intellectuals Forum, part of the 4th United Nations Conference on Least Developed Countries. There is too much discriminatory terminology in the global political and economic arena, according to Davutoglu, who said this reflected differentiation made among the world’s countries. “There are permanent members in the U.N. Security Council, and permanent [means] they will decide what will be happening in the world [in the future], it means they have the right of veto,” the minister said, calling this system unjust and in need of change.
