U.S. President Barack Obama pledged on Tuesday to help the poor nations and urged the rich to discard their "indifference."

"To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds," Obama said immediately after his presidential inauguration at the U.S. Capitol, as people around the world were listening.

"And to those nations like ours that enjoy relative plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to suffering outside our borders; nor can we consume the world's resources without regard to effect," he said.
