In the nine-page declaration, the world leaders reaffirmed their commitment to the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, which have proved timeless and universal.
The world leaders pledged to establish a just and lasting peace all over the world in accordance with the objectives and principles of the charter, and reaffirmed to support all efforts to uphold the sovereign equality of all states, respect for their territorial integrity and political independence, and resolution of disputes by peaceful means in conformity with the principles of justice and international law.
They also reaffirmed to support the right of self-determination of peoples which remain under colonial domination and foreign occupation, non-interference in the internal affairs of states, respect for human rights and fundamental freedom, respect for the equal right of all without distinction to race, sex, language or religion.
The world leaders believed that the central challenge facing the international community is to ensure that globalization becomes a positive force for all the world peoples, and recognized that only through broad and sustained efforts to create a shared future, based upon the common humanity in all its diversity, can globalization be made fully inclusive and equitable.
They are determined to create an environment at the national and global levels alike which is conducive to development and to the elimination of poverty.
The leaders voiced their support for the consolidation of democracy in Africa and promised to assist Africans in their struggle for lasting peace, poverty eradication and sustainable development, thereby bringing Africa into the mainstream of the world economy,
On strengthening the United Nations, the world leaders said they would spare no efforts to make the United Nations a more effective instrument for pursuing all of these priorities: the fight for development for all the peoples of the world; the fight against poverty, ignorance and disease; the fight against injustice; the fight against violence, terror and crime; and the fight against the degradation and destruction of the environment.
