Noting the crisis in Syria, the Prime Minister of Slovenia, Janez Janša, in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly, called on the international community to develop a new strategy to prevent genocide and other mass atrocities.
“It shocks our conscience that we have been unable to stop bloodshed,” he told the 67th Assembly’s General Debate, taking place at UN Headquarters in New York, on Thursday. “In my view, the situation is critical. It speaks for the urgent need to consider strengthening the preventive capacities of the UN, its member states and regional organisations. Concerted efforts to avert mass atrocities are needed.”
