In my speech delivered at the African Youth Development Colloquium of the University of Freiburg, Germany and recently published in The Youth Advisor Magazine, I predicted that the Swiss-trained new leader of North Korea Kim Jong-Un may become the golden child of modern-day diplomacy and “long-awaited one who will relax tension and bridge the volatile gap between the West and the East...”, a move which could further pave way for beneficial diplomatic and bilateral cooperation between both regions. Today in his New Year speech, Mr Jong-Un signaled his intentions of seeing South Korea reunified with North Korea. This is a political theory which in the last administration, in the time of his late father, would have seemed a taboo. This call for reunification from this aspiring young leader is a welcome development which should be taken seriously especially by Western powers. Though to many ‘an internal North Korean/South Korean issue’, it is also a powerful diplomatic communication to the West in which he is saying “I am ready for reasonable co-operation”. Reasonable cooperation, one which the West will go into whilst respecting the territorial integrity of North Korea. How the Barrack Obama and European Union Administrations respectively receive this statement and utilize same is expected to create a decisive phase in modern diplomacy and politics as well as for the utopian age of global peace. If this cooperation happens, the benefits cannot be over-emphasized when considering what inter-change of trade, research and development, and most importantly, cooperation for world peace could bring. This move if successful also has the ability of increasing the economic viability of the two Koreas and could give birth to another economic giant in the East after China. Future cooperation and understanding if this happens will depend on the role the West plays now.

Dear distinguished Rapporteurs of Team 3,

This is yet another festive period. We’ve gradually come to the end of the year, a year which has been very successful, one which saw to the starting-up of our Working Group on Global Development Issues.

I wish to thank every one of you for your contributions so far and wish you and your lovely families a Merry Christmas and a very prosperous New Year.

It has been indeed an honor working with you all so far and am earnestly looking forward to continuing doing the same when we return from the holidays next year.

Because of the 1884 approval of the colonization of Africa, Africa's affairs has always become internationally interwoven. Its affairs as regards specifically trade and politics have had strong links with the international community. It is then necessary that for Africa to achieve sustainable political, social and economic development in the 21st century it has to utilize this synergy, not following the usual beggerly approach of developmental help, but in a useful synergy which will see us exchanging what we have with the outside world for both out internal development and the development of other parts of the globe. An example is the resolve of the European Union which is investing billions of dollars through its DESERTEC solar technology project, allowing Africa provide its power generation needs for the future. By 2050 it is estimated that through this synergy, the African continent will be responsible for prividing Europe with over 14% of its electricity. A similar synergy can be made also to benefit not only Europe but the US and even developing parts of the world. But the huge benefit here is that Africa also benefits. For these benefits thus to be properly utilized for Africa's development needs though, a comprehensive framework for this even in the IYC level where the next African leaders can meet and discuss ways forward.
