UK's Cameron says Arab Spring 'opportunity' in UN speech
NEW YORK -- In his first speech to the UN General
Assembly, United Kingdom Prime Minister David
Cameron spoke on behalf of bilateral negotiations
between Israelis and Palestinians, and said that
Libya and the Arab Spring show that the UN "needs a
new way of working."
"The Arab Spring is a massive opportunity to spread
peace, prosperity, democracy and vital security, but
only if we really seize it," Cameron said.
Saying that the people of the Arab world "have made
their aspirations clear," Cameron noted that
democracy "is a process, not an event."
