The Millennium Declaration

Hopes for world peace and prosperity hinged on Millennium Summit. Kings, generals, presidents and prime ministers are assembling in New York with the lofty goal of turning the 21st century into an epoch free of war, poverty, ignorance and disease. But they are also using the UN Millennium Summit - the largest gathering of world leaders in history. At the summit's conclusion, world leaders are EXPECTED TO ADOPT THE MILLENNIUM DECLARATION, Which commits to eradicating poverty, promoting education and reversing the spread of HIV/AIDS. A nine-page draft circulated Monday also vows to promote democracy and strengthen respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, "including the right to development" - a key demand by Third World countries. While the overall declaration was being drafted, individual leaders were stating their own goals. All the world's problems are going to be thrown on the table for discussion.

THE LIBYAN GOVERNMENT EXPECTED TO TAKE NOTE AND ADOPT THE MILLENNIUM DECLARATION By reforming the system of government to accommodate the opposition groups, the new system must be based on democracy, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.
