You can read the full text of his remarks by clicking here. I listened to his remarks and was very moved by them. The United States should use this moment to renew its relationship with the United Nations and the international community. This was the first time that President Obama addressed the U.N. General Assembly. He pointed out that the United States has "paid [its] bills" to the U.N, joined the Human Rights Council, and signed the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. He also announced "four pillars that are fundamental to the future that we want for our children:  non-proliferation and disarmament;  the promotion of peace and security;  the preservation of our planet; and  a global economy that advances opportunities for all people."
Hat tip to the United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA) for posting the remarks
