Monarchs address UN General Assembly

Three monarchs made statements during the United Nations General Assembly in New York on September 24, 2104. Here are some excerpts from their speeches.

Spain's King Felipe VI said:

"Spain upholds a United Nations that is not only stronger but, above all, more united: more united against fanaticism, intolerance and barbarism. More united in fighting against poverty, hunger and marginalization. More united so that education and health reach all. More united… in firmly defending the dignity of all human beings."


Qatar's Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani said:

"It is imperative for the international community to work hard to put an end to the bloodshed and the systematic destruction of Syria by a regime that has put its people between a rock and a hard place to choose between accepting its presence at the helm or burning down their country."


Jordan's King Abdullah II said:

"We need to shut down the sources of extremist support, push back and defeat these groups. This demands a 'coalition of the determined' — one that can combat the threat with consistency and resolve. Allow me to salute the partnership that is gearing up."

  1. All countries need to have respect for choice, religion and life.
    More wars are over religion. Let's end this and compete in sports, board games and good conversations at gatherings where using the mind can create a better world for all.
    Those nations that harbor terrorists need to face the serious consequences of their 'non action' in dealing with the enemy of Life and the Pursuit of Happiness for all man kind.
