U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged countries to do more to combat the “crisis” of confidence in schools.
Speaking at a conference on the sidelines of the General Assembly, Ban said the United States is facing a “crises of confidence” that is being caused by the U.K.’s referendum on leaving the European Union and a number of other international developments.
In a speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday, Ban, who was elected last year, said the U,S.
and other countries are “all in a race against time” to stem the “rising tide of populism.”
The U.s. is the only major nation not to vote in favor of the EU withdrawal, but Ban said it is a sign of growing confidence that can help bring about change.
In his speech, Ban called on countries to take “a clear, bold and unequivocal position” on how to address “the crisis of confidence and a decline in the trust of our children.”
The United Nations has said the “global situation has changed dramatically” in the last few years, and Ban called for “the adoption of a new, bold, comprehensive, inclusive, resilient and sustainable approach to building resilience and building trust in our children’s education.”
He also said “we must also reflect on our own institutions, our children and our future.”
Ban said that since the U .
S. is “the only major country not to have voted in favor” of leaving the EU, “it is a signal of growing belief in our nation’s strength and our capacity to respond.”
In the speech, he called for an international summit to resolve the situation in the Us. and in Europe.
He said it will be “a catalyst for a political and economic dialogue that can make a difference in the lives of people in Europe and the United Kingdom.”
Ban also said the new U.A.E. is being led by an “enormous number of individuals who do not understand the value of the European and U. S. institutions.”
He said the group has been in power since 2009, when it was created by then-Prime Minister Cameron.
“It has failed in its mandate, in its governance, in the governance of the countries and the people of the region,” he said.
“In this crisis, I am reminded that our children are at the forefront.”
In his address, Ban stressed that the U S and the U A.
E are “one family,” and that the “unique relationship between the United states and the European institutions must be respected and strengthened.”
“The United States has its share of challenges, and we need to work together in a positive way to address them,” he added.
