US President John Biden's speech, last month before the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly, was not an ordinary protocol word on the occasion, but rather an exceptional word, unaccustomed to previous US administrations, both Democratic and Republican, in which the veteran president wanted to explain to world leaders The main directions that draw the road map for the work of his administration in its current session, and its vision for managing American internal and external interests, and how to lead the world. Standing at the details of this word is of great importance in understanding many upcoming events and developments that will result from them politically, economically and socially at the regional and international levels. What is the origin of this word? And what are its features? What are its origins and implications? And what will it entail?

It was very remarkable that the main guiding principles of President Biden's plan coincide, to a large extent, with the plan adopted by UN member states in 2015 at the 70th session of the UN General Assembly, known as the Plan to Transform the World, or the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals plan.

Plan premises

It was very remarkable that the main guiding principles of President Biden's plan largely coincide with the plan to transform the world adopted by the member states of the United Nations in 2015 at the 70th session of the United Nations General Assembly, known as the plan to transform the world, or the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals plan, which addressed I talked about it in my article published on 10/20/2020 under the title “The Plan to Transform the World.”

The United Nations plan to transform the world was launched at the end of the term of Democratic President Barack Obama, when Biden was his vice-president. White expanded slightly on what these goals included.

As for Republican President Donald Trump, he did not pay any attention to these goals, and was preoccupied with implementing his program that relies on the policy of the big stick.

President Biden, in his speech, did not refer to the relationship of these guidelines to the United Nations plan to transform the world, but the contents of the speech clearly show the extent of their compatibility with the United Nations plan, and thus restore the luster to the plan to transform the world, and give tremendous political support to the goals of sustainable development 2030, which The United Nations has dubbed this decade of its lifetime the “decade of acceleration” as its goals are supposed to be met by 2030.

    There is a long way to go to achieve this goal at the moment, but we should not despair of the prospect of progress.

  • Continue to work with the international community to press for peace and an end to the suffering brought on by raging civil conflicts, including in Ethiopia and Yemen.

  • The democratic world is everywhere.

    He lives in anti-corruption activists, and in human rights defenders.

  • No perfect democracy is perfect, even in the United States, which continues to struggle to live up to the highest ideals, and democracy remains the best tool for unleashing our human potential.

10. Building the future:

  • The future will belong to those who embrace human dignity, not to those who crush it.

  • The future belongs to those who unleash the potential of their people, not to those who stifle it.

  • The future will belong to those who give their people the ability to breathe freely, not those who seek to strangle their people with an iron hand.

  • The world must once again join one another, to affirm that humanity, greater than any divisions or differences, appears on the surface.

Ensuring a future in which technologies are a vital tool for solving humanitarian challenges and enhancing human capabilities, and not a source of further discord and oppression.

  • I am standing here today, for the first time in 20 years, and the United States is not at war.

    We have turned the page.

  • All American power, energy, commitment, resolve, and resources will be focused entirely and directly on the future, not on the past.

  • America will lead on the greatest challenges of our time, from COVID-19 to climate, peace, human dignity, and human rights.

    But she will not be alone.

  • The United States will lead the world with its allies and partners, and in cooperation with all who believe in the ability to meet these challenges to build a future that advances all peoples and preserves this planet.

  • There is no more time to waste, let's get down to business, let's start working on our better future now.

This Biden word seems, to many, a dreamy romantic, the countries of the world are not accustomed to hearing from the leaders of the American empire on such occasions, but this is not the case, it is the big difference between the vision of the Democrats who believe that the United States cannot impose its values ​​by force on any country from States, and among the Republicans who planned the 21st century to be the new American century, in which the American states extend their hegemony over the world and impose their values ​​on their countries by force.
