Video: Obama charts new world order

President spoke on world unity and how it is not solely up to US to solve problems.

    US President Barack Obama has outlined his vision of a new world order during his first address to the UN general assembly meeting in New York.

    His vision was rooted in four basic principles: Non proliferation and disarmament, the promotion of peace and security, the preservation of the planet, and a global economy that advances opportunity for all people.

    Among the speakers that followed were Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader, and the UN secretary-general, Ban Ki-Moon.
