The work of the United Nations is paramount in maintaining world peace and security. In its maintenance of this role, the United Nations must be able to demonstrate legitimacy and fairness in its actions, cognizant always of the need to protect the most vulnerable,” he said.Henderson said the ability of the UN Security Council to adequately respond to new and changing world dynamics rest in its acceptance of the need for continuous reform to adapt to the time, including recognition of the increase in membership of the UN.Dominica Vibes News Share Tweetlast_img
