UNITED NATIONS-- President Cyril Ramaphosa has praised the United Nations for continuing to offer hope to South Africans during the dark days of Apartheid.
In his address to the UN General Assembly here Tuesaday, the president said that South Africa was making progress in addressing key issues in the country, including the land question and weak economic growth.
President Ramaphosa praised the UN for continuing to offer hope to South Africans during the dark days of Apartheid and said the country was continuing to move forward in addressing the legacy of oppression and discrimination.
President Ramaphosa and many other global leaders emphasized the need for global co-operation as the high-level segment of the UN General Assembly 73rd session continues here this week.
This is in stark contrast to the speech of United States President Donald Trump who emphasized patriotism and downplayed the role of globalism.
President Trump also took a swipe at oil-producing countries for the high oil price which is stoking high fuel prices in many parts of the world.
