State Secretary Doru Costea delivered Romania?s national address at the 66th session of the UN General Assembly (Part)
State Secretary Doru Costea delivered, on 27 September 2011 in New York, Romania?s national address in the General Debate of the 66th session of the UN General Assembly, the theme of which is the ?Role of Mediation in the Peaceful Settlement of Disputes.?

The Romanian State Secretary referred to Romania?s commitment to preparing the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, Romania holding the chairmanship of the UN Committee on Sustainable Development, charged with preparing the ?Rio +20? UN Conference due in June 2012; to the need to promote the green economy; and to continuing the mobilization to combat climate change and adopt a post-Kyoto global regime.

The State Secretary also mentioned the difficulties engendered by the global economic crisis, stressing in that context the need for reforms and efficient utilization of available resources. ?In times of crisis, options are limited. We can dwell in endless debates on ?what should have been done? and ?might have been?s?. But this is not the time for such debates ? rather, it is the time to act. Reforms are needed that observe comprehensively good governance principles, human rights and fundamental freedoms, as well as the wise use of available resources. This is the only option. A country without equal and dignified citizens can never be rich,? said State Secretary Doru Costea, winding up his address.
