Turkey: Former President of Montenegro at the Summit in Istanbul

Former President of Montenegro Filip Vujanovic participated at the opening ceremony of the 22nd Eurasian Economic Summit, in Istanbul, Turkey. The summit is organized by Marmara Foundation from Turkey. On this occasion, former President addressed following:

Your Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

Mankind has values that are permanent and irreplaceable. Due to this globalisation is necessary and without alternative. These values are peace, stability, prosperity and health. Peace is opposite of war, stability is opposite of instability, prosperity is opposite of stagnation and health is opposite of disease and death. These values demand global conduct, adjustment and new dimensions.

States cannot protect these values alone. Regional actions are not enough either. Thus global actions are the condition and guaranty to permanency and stability of these values.

The United Nations is dedicated to global peace and stability. The World Trade Organization is devoted to the global values of trade within international community and the World Health Organization has the global mission to protect and improve health of all citizens in the world.

The United Nations is necessary because wars are evil that international community could fight against only globally. The Ward War II, with its millions victims, massive destruction and common tragedy, makes The United Nations necessary. However, the dedication to the sustainable development, migrations and the prevention of negative consequences of climate changes enhance the new dimensions of global activities within the United Nations. This is important because sustainable development, the difficult and painful problems of migrants as well as negative consequences of climate changes are duties that require continuous adjustment and new dimensions of global activities.

Geographic, demographic, economic and many others reasons make regional connections necessary and important. The connections in all domains, including economics and trade, will always have special values and significance. However, international economic and trade community is not the summation of regions. Thus, global organizations are irreplaceable, especially the Ward Trade Organization. Evidently, they have to be in line with real circumstances and with the global actions with new dimensions.

Globalization does not have alternative. It is necessary to explore existing possibilities and new dimensions. Each state should be a responsible and reliable member of international organizations and that is the precondition to success of these organizations.

At the end, I would like to address the message that has everlasting value. It is our duty to be responsible, reliable and creative members of international organizations.
