“Multilateral institutions are used to gain credibility for biased attacks against countries, even as scrutiny of the powerful is considered unnecessary. When matters of principle become associated with domination and disdain, then the basis for joint action in the multilateral system is compromised. There is human dignity involved, and even survival. No country or system, has a monopoly on wisdom, much less a claim to moral superiority. Our task is to settle the future, not the past. Change is coming, and it is necessary. No one can manage it alone, and the Global Goals rightly recognize our mutual interdependence. We have made good commitments, now we must make good on these commitments. Building a community of shared purpose capable of doing so, starts with a recognition of our equality.”
– President Kagame addressing the United Nations General Assembly.
