This article highlighting three problems of developed and developing countries and the United Nations was publishes in Daily the Jang’s Karachi edition on 17th April 1975.
Since than the world has changed from a bi-polar world to a uni-polar world and now has been upgraded to the status of a multi-polar world. India, China and initially four, then five and now nine developing countries have emerged as global economic growth models. It is indeed a heartening development. India has become an economic apple of world’s eyes, China has surprised the world with its growth resilience and Israel has become an undeclared nuclear power.
Unfortunately, those problems that I had pointed out back in 1975 are still there. Players have changed but nothing else has moved from disappointing to satisfactory status. United Nations has become a hostage of global power politics and gap between rich and poor is widening to an alarming extent resulting in social unrest to a scale nonparallel in the history of international economics. Isn’t it the time for the countries those matter in international relations to wake up. Will they? That question remains unanswered.
