Ukraine proposes new UN body on ecological prot
Ukraine is going to tangibly contribute
A new body that is tasked to ensure ecological protection around the world should be set up inside the United Nations, Ukrainian President Victor Yushchenko told the annual high-level debate of the 63rd UN General Assembly Wednesday, according to Xinhua. "We reinforce our call for a more active global cooperation in the sphere of ecology," he told world leaders attending the second-day debate.
"Ukraine puts forward an initiative to develop a framework binding agreement -- World Environmental Constitution -- and to establish a system of a single structure for ecological protection with relevant authority and mechanisms of work in the UN," Yushchenko said.
He said Ukraine is going to tangibly contribute to the common work on solving global food crisis.
"We plan to consolidate all possible efforts to realization of the effective and just energy policy," he said. "The principles which should be implemented are: mutual benefit, continuous fulfillment of obligations and inadmissibility of any energy pressure."
