NEW YORK -- In his first speech to the UN General Assembly, United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron spoke on behalf of bilateral negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, and said that Libya and the Arab Spring show that the UN "needs a new way of working."

"The Arab Spring is a massive opportunity to spread peace, prosperity, democracy and vital security, but only if we really seize it," Cameron said.

Saying that the people of the Arab world "have made their aspirations clear," Cameron noted that democracy "is a process, not an event."
