Khalilzad inadvertently endorses the Sovereignty Principle

Speaking on the role of the President of the General Assembly, US Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad today said that it was the PGA's job to bring the "192 tribes here" together.

Tribalism, of course, is the fundamental doctrine at the heart of the Sovereignty Principle. No tribe shall suffer itself to be lorded over by another for long. Thus, it is only through sovereignty and defined borders that any international order, peace and stability be achieved.

Thanks, Ambassador Khalilzad!
