Each year, countries from 193 countries send high-rankinng delegations to the New York to attend the annual UNGA.
Several heads of states attend the international event and give lecture and talk to the world on behalf of their people.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addressed the 72nd session of the UNGA on September 20 (Wednesday) at his fifth presence in the international body as the President of the Islamic Republic and his first after being re-elected for the second term in May 2017.
During his first appearance in the UNGA in September 2013, President Rouhani declared the doctrine of his government to the world by saying, 'Iran seeks to resolve problems, not to create them. There is no issue or dossier that cannot be resolved through reliance on hope and prudent moderation, mutual respect, and rejection of violence and extremism.'
It was the same doctrine that led to a historic nuclear agreement between Iran and world six major countries two years later when Iran and world six major powers reached an agreement in July 2015 which was later known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
The international deal was made between Iran, on the one hand, and US, Russia, Britain, France and China plus Germany on the other hand. The historic nuclear deal ended an unnecessary crisis recognizing Iran's right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
During his first appearance in the UN in 2013, the Iranian president also offered the 'World against Violence and Extremism (WAVE)' proposal in an address to the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly which was overwhelmingly approved later by the members states in December 2013 as the WAVE Act urging all nations across the globe to denounce violence and extremism.
President Rouhani's win-win policy for resolution of nuclear issue has now become a model for the world and many analysts and officials across the globe have called for resolution of international issues including the North Korean nuclear issue based on this model.
'The JCPOA can become a new model for global interactions; interactions based on mutual constructive engagement between all of us,' President Rouhani said before the 72nd UN General Assembly.
Five years after Rouhani's WAVE proposal, Takfiri terrorism in the region is fading away and Iraq and Syria major cities have been cleaned of terrorist elements due to Iran's serious support for regional resistance against Takfirisim.
The win-win policy of Iran has also led to the seven rounds of talks between various belligerent groups in Syria and has already resulted in establishment of four de-escalation zones in the country.
Criticizing world states failure to pay due attention to the WAVE Act, President Rouhani referred to the missed opportunities in this regard regretting, 'If we truly believe in our collective decision four years ago here in this General assembly to make a WAVE – a World against Violence and Extremism – we can turn the discourse of imposition, unilateralism, intimidation and war into the logic of dialogue, synergy and peace so that moderation can become the dominant voice across the globe.'
While the world is praising five year practice of moderation in Iran, President Rouhani showed a new horizon to the world in its speech in the 72nd UN General Assembly on September 20 urging the world community to practice moderation and tolerance and try to play a win-win game instead of using force to reach their goals.
'The path of moderation is the path of peace; but a just and inclusive peace: not peace for one nation, and war and turmoil for others,' he said in a reference to the paradoxical approach adopted by certain powers.
'We consider dialogue and negotiations based on a positive-sum paradigm as the only path towards the resolution of global and regional crises,' President Rouhani stressed.
President Rouhani's doctrine for protecting and preserving our planet earth stands against the US President Donad Trump's doctrine which said, "Make America Great Again'.
Trump's speech in the 72nd UNGA was full of threats and insults against other world nations. He threatened total destruction of North Korea and withdrawal from international agreements including the JCPOA.
Despite efforts made by the Zionist-backed media to portrait Iran as a source of threat to the region and the entire world, now it is the US that is ready to destruct others for the sake of saving its own interests.
As President Rouhani said in his speech, the Islamic Republic has shown its sincerity and honesty in practice and it is time for the international community especially the western capitals to prove their commitment to their obligations.
If the international community do not fulfill its promises based on the historic nuclear deal with Iran and allow the 'rogue newcomers to the world of politics' to violate the international deal, then the world should expect more distrust and chaos.
