Pope worried that a few big powers control int'l decision-making
04/18/2008
Pope Benedict XVI warned diplomats at the United Nations on Friday that international cooperation needed to solve urgent problems is "in crisis" because decisions rest in the hands of a few powerful nations. In a major speech on his US trip, Benedict also said that respect for human rights, not violence, was the key to solving many of the world's problems. While he did not identify the countries that have a stranglehold on global power, the German pope - just the third pontiff to address the UN General Assembly - addressed long-standing Vatican concerns about the struggle to achieve world peace and the development of the poorest regions.
