"A strong leader is not the one who, without even blinking an eye, sends thousands of soldiers to their deaths. A strong leader is someone who values all human life and tries to protect the lives of all people," he said on the second day of the high-level General Debate of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly on September 25, according to an UNIAN correspondent.
