I see that our Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully has been strutting about the UN. He will be trying to drum up support for our Security Council bid.
He has also given a speech to the UN General Assembly, denouncing atrocities in Syria and demanding that action be taken.
We should all be concerned about this regime, ruled by a leader who appears to have no regard for the suffering of his people, and where police and security forces appear to operate almost with impunity. It's clear that regime change is desperately needed.
But we should also be concerned about Syria.
