UN General Assembly 67th session: Statement delivered at the General Debate - Sierra Leone

A statement delivered to the 67th General Assembly annual General Debate by the Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Sierra Leone, in which he mentioned climate change as one of the issues that further exacerbated the situation and compromised the determination and efforts of the developing countries, especially the Least Developed Countries, to attain internationally agreed development goals, including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). He commended Brazil for successfully hosting the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development, and equally applauded his country's solidarity and flexibility during the negotiation process to incorporate the LDCs and conflict affected countries in the Rio+20 outcome document. We looked forward to a similar spirit of solidarity in coming up with sustainable development goals that take on board concerns of the most vulnerable members of the community of nations.
