UNITED NATIONS — President Obama, in his final speech to the United Nations on Tuesday, made an impassioned plea on behalf of a liberal world order that he admitted was under growing pressure from wars in the Middle East and rising nationalism at home and in Europe.
Speaking to the United Nations General Assembly for the eighth and last time as president, Obama sought to rise above the conflicts of the moment and outline a vision for coming decades by stressing the importance of liberal institutions built after World War II, including the United Nations.
