Below are links for the full transcript for Putin's recent address to the United Nations in 2015.
(I saw the related post but I thought I would post these links on a separate post.)
The speech reveals many things you would never get out of the news.
He speaks about certain nations making secret trade deals keeping the details secret from those respective countries citizens, circumventing WTO
principles, as well as details and understanding of what is going on in Syria and the ME.
"Having established a foothold in Iraq and Syria, the Islamic State has begun actively expanding to other regions. It is seeking dominance in the
Islamic world. And not only there, and its plans go further than that. The situation is more than dangerous.
In these circumstances, it is hypocritical and irresponsible to make loud declarations about the threat of international terrorism while turning a
blind eye to the channels of financing and supporting terrorists, including the process of trafficking and illicit trade in oil and arms. It would be
equally irresponsible to try to manipulate extremist groups and place them at one's service in order to achieve one's own political goals in the
hope of later dealing with them or, in other words, liquidating them.
To those who do so, I would like to say — dear sirs, no doubt you are dealing with rough and cruel people, but they're in no way primitive or
silly. They are just as clever as you are, and *you never know who is manipulating whom*. And the recent data on arms transferred to this most
moderate opposition is the best proof of it.
We believe that any attempts to play games with terrorists, let alone to arm them, are not just short-sighted, but fire hazardous."
"Today, we provide military and technical assistance both to Iraq and Syria and many other countries of the region who are fighting terrorist
"..WTO principles, stipulating the freedom of trade, and investment and open competition.
Nevertheless, today, unilateral sanctions circumventing the U.N. Charter have become commonplace, in addition to pursuing political objectives. The
sanctions serve as a means of eliminating competitors.
I would like to point out another sign of a growing economic selfishness. Some countries [have] chosen to create closed economic associations, with
the establishment being negotiated behind the scenes, in secret from those countries' own citizens, the general public, business community and from
Other states whose interests may be affected are not informed of anything, either. It seems that we are about to be faced with an accomplished fact
that the rules of the game have been changed in favor of a narrow group of the privileged, with the WTO having no say. This could unbalance the trade
system completely and disintegrate the global economic space."
"Mr. Suleta, a Colombian diplomat and the chairman of the Preparatory Commission, opened the session by giving, I believe, a concise definition of
the basic principles that the U.N. should follow in its activities, which are free will, defiance of scheming and trickery and spirit of
Today, his words sound as a guidance for all of us. Russia believes in the huge potential of the United Nations, which should help us avoid a new
global confrontation and engage in strategic cooperation. Together with other countries, we will consistently work towards strengthening the central
coordinating role of the U.N. I'm confident that by working together, we will make the world stable and safe, as well as provide conditions for the
development of all states and nations.
I think its great that we have access to the transcript of this speech, as well as the speeches of all of the respective delegates and diplomats
representing their countries. Just google the particular country, delegate and with "full UN speech transcript". It is really interesting to hear
concerns and issues from the horses mouth so to speak.
The news does not really teach you anything about whats really going on. The United Nations meeting transcripts may give us the rare opportunity to
get a glimpse of what is.

S&F on an important thread about a very important man.
Those "closed economic associations" he refers to bother me because as he confirms they are purely in the interest of only a few elitist people who
want total control over the world and are doing it by trade agreements.
He is spot on about the arming and "playing games" with terrorists. There is a whole lot of manoeuvring going on in the ME which I suspect it getting
totally out of hand. Its like our cameron courting Muslim voters by well wishing Eid with the pig scandal flying around his head - its a huge
hypocritical laugh and ploy which hopefully has f--ted in his face! It shows how low the elite themselves will go.
We all can see the USA with the backing of oink cameron and other elitists are hell bent on a war with the islamic countries ultimately. They know
people will flock to back their religious sides, probably on a simplistic level, because they want change to the present corrupt system existing in
most of the institutions in their own countries. Its not healthy and life is getting more like a virus politically purely designed to ultimately cull
numbers of people and remove opposing governments.
I was pleased to see the respect President Putin has for the UN and I hope people will try to get our self-interested, corrupt and hamstrung leaders
to listen to the common sense he has laid on the table. I hope Corbyn in the UK has time to listen to his words and starts sweeping clean some of our
No wonder Western leaders hate and are jealous of Putin, there are many in their own countries who would vote for the man as opposed to them.
Putins speech was a clear shot across the bow of the globalist establishment that I eluded to
The picture of Obama's body language speaks volumes! Just watching DW (German) news and the anchor guy also mentions how there wasn't much of an eye
contact between the two POTUS.
Obama was not comfortable at all having less ammunition as Putin out spoke him with the truth, bare as it should be. I am happy that such truth has
been spoken especially in the UNGA forum that such a smacking is necessary to expose the oligarchs.
Today is a special day, apart from Mars having water, Putin has just hammered a much needed nail on the head..

This speech has been a long-time coming in terms of finally bringing, which I feel to be a common-held view regarding the United States' foreign
policy among the other major nations, to the spotlight of international news and politics. It's been the white elephant in the room for the past few
decades; everyone could see it but no one wanted to talk about it.
I still don't know what to make of Putin to be honest. I don't fully trust him and I'm not sure why, but I give credit where credit is due and his
speech was great. Read the whole transcript and agreed with the whole thing. This 'spreading democracy and freedom' platform has completely
destabilized the Middle East and encouraged millions of migrants to spill into mainland Europe that would have otherwise never had to have been there.
It's an absolute train wreck - and just like a train wreck the cars still in motion at the rear of the train are continuing to crash, roll and be
crushed on the tracks.
But will this speech cause any real change? Or will it be 'business as usual'? Very hard to judge. Either way, the cracks of discontent and discourse
are starting to show, and they're going to get wider.
"The question is, does he have the balls to back this up with his teeth as well as his tongue. "
His troops & military are in Syria now backing Assad.
Yeah I think he does.
Putin is after all, a politician & rhetoric is what politicians do.
He was great. He realized everybody wanted to talk about Syria, but he wanted to talk about Climate Change, and so he did! I loved it. A touch of
rebellion. He does say, Assad has to go.
China: says they will keep 8,000 troops ready to go in the event of global emergencies. Very, very interesting. If you are going to watch another
vid, watch his.
I wish to take this opportunity to announce China’s decision to establish a 10-year, US$1 billion China-UN peace and development fund
to support the UN’s work, advance multilateral cooperation and contribute more to world peace and development. I wish to announce that China will
join the new UN Peacekeeping Capability Readiness System and has thus decided to take the lead in setting up a permanent peacekeeping police squad and
build a peacekeeping standby force of 8,000 troops. I also wish to announce that China will provide a total of US$100 million of free military
assistance to the African Union in the next five years to support the establishment of the African Standby Force and the African Capacity for
Immediate Response to Crisis.

Iran: Blames every problem on the planet on the U.S. and Israel. No surprise there. The globe can make a lot of money if they will work with Iran,
Qatari Emir: He's sort of scary. Seemed very angry and spoke rapidly. Blames everything on Israel. He really creeped me out.
Syria: There was a 'right-time" to intervene in Syria, and that time was missed. The International community has failed them. He said get rid of
the terrorists, and send Syrians home. He used the word 'demand'.... He DEMANDS the region be disarmed of nukes. Says the U.S. failed with Iran.
anyway.... a few notes from your resident scatterbrain.

So the UN are allowing mobster bosses
to speak in their halls now.
Shame on them
Now? That implies it has been any different in the past. Saudi freaking Arabia is leading a human right panel there
get the idea that you would hope to bring different cultures together and the best of each would inspire each, but in reality the organization is rife
with corruption (ti-defence.org...) and criminality of all
I am no fan of Putin, but he tore it up with that speech.
