Kofi Annan talks about restoring respect for law

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan has told world leaders that the rule of law is under attack in crisis points around the globe. The secretary-general reminded his audience of presidents and prime ministers that international law is almost as old as civilization itself. He lamented that in places from Iraq to Darfur, northern Uganda to the site of the recent terrorist massacres in southern Russia, as well as in Israel and the &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/world/2001/09/29/16629.html ' target=_blank>Palestinian territories, the rule of law is being flouted.

"Today the rule of law is at risk around the world," said Mr. Annan. "Again and again we see fundamental laws shamelessly disregarded; those that ordain respect for innocent life, for civilians, for the vulnerable - especially children."

Speaking in the &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/usa/2001/04/18/3754.html' target=_blank>language of diplomacy, Mr. Annan was careful to avoid direct criticism in his speech. But his meaning was clear as he cautioned powerful countries to restore respect for law.

"We must start from the principle that no one is above the law, and no one should be denied its protection," he added. "Every nation that proclaims &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/region/2002/05/15/28743.html' target=_blank>rule of law at home must respect it abroad. And every nation that insists on it abroad must enforce it at home.", reports Voice of America.

Bush's UN speech was sandwiched between meetings with world leaders -- and a sit-down with Annan. It is an unusual burst of diplomacy for Bush, who has been keeping a punishing travel schedule to swing states as he seeks re-election.

He announced his intention to create a news service called "Pravda," which means "truth" in Russian. Well, we are Pravda. The Pravda.Ru website has been working professionally in Russia since 1999
