    To ,

    Antonio Guterres ,
    Honourable Secretary General ,
    United Nations , New York ,

    Respected Sir ,

    How should I develop my thoughts , look out and views towards the global diversified territories which are overburdened by almost alike inter-political issues as refugee immigrations and rehabilitations , improper allocation of grants, loans by the country/territorial governments which are contradicting the global aspiration of United Nations and World Bank Group ; by the environmentally unsustainable socio-economic and industrial globalized development etc. ; that are facing as challenges for achieving the goals and strategies of poverty eradication initiatives undertaken by United Nations and by IBRD ( International Bank for Reconstruction and Development ) , IDA (International Development Association ) , IFC (International Financial Co-operation in a globalized corporate way / (IMF ) , ICSID (International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes ) and MIGA ( Multinational Investment Guarantee Agency ) within World Bank Group in coordinated sequences .

    Environmentally Sustainable socio-economic – industrial and service-sectoral development have better to be moderated and operationalized through the policies based on traditional , cultural and ethnic issues influenced by ethics of indigenous people and of immigrational people in aggregate .

    Socio-economic industrial and service sectoral development may better to be imitated by such ethical entities , in case of suzerain – suzerain , suzerain – vassal and vassal-vassal zonewise diplomatic territorial management mechanisms of United Nations ; with a view for achieving the goals and strategies of United Nations and World Bank group , incorporating the extended political institutional international infrastructures as SAARC ( South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation ) , BRICS countries , African Union , European Union , ASEAN ( Association of South East Asian Nations ) , Arab League , Caribbean Communities , G-20 and so on . Contemporary viewing and differentiation of the territories existing within such international organizations , as the territories /countries belonging to democratic government , republics , semi-sovereign and sovereign governments , Semi – autonomous and autonomous land masses ,free states etc. may be effective ; when diplomatic collaborations and cooperations are extended towards SAARC , BRICS , African Union , Europen Union , ASEAN , Arab League , Caribbean Communities ,G-20 and so on ; in order to achieve the coordinated goals and strategies of United Nations and World Bank Group , in a limited strategic achievement period as to end extreme poverty within the year 2030 .

    Sir , it may enlighten better consequences , if common goals and strategies of United Nations and of World Bank Group pertaining to the issues of poverty eradication , sustainable socio-economic developmental processing etc. are undertaken within the range of assimilation and compromisation diplomacy ; focussing the goals and objectives of interpolitical territorial organizations as of ASEAN , SAARC , BRICS , European Union , African Union , Arab League , Caribbean Communities etc.

    It may also be further fruitful , to encompass diplomatically the oppositional political parties of the 193-numbers of sovereign territories /countries etc. viewed by United Nations , in the purview of the goals and strategies of United Nations since status of government formation mechanisms for a state , country , free-state ; sovereign /autonomous / semi-sovereign or semi-autonomous territory is not perennial , it is almost dynamic in a democratic pathway through ballot campaigning .

    ….Waiting fervently to learn lessons from you ,

    Thanking You ,

    Sincerely Yours’

    Respected Sir ,

    It is likely feasible to eradicate diplomatically the issues of expansion and enhancement of elements and factors , that set up and focus the components of poverty expansion ; that may be possible through precise allocation , mobilization and utilization of financial aids provided for international and ensuingly to be extended global Corona /COVID-19 pandemic strategies .

    The strategies as poverty eradication attempts may be facilitated by management and implicit coordination-compromisation through the opportunities of local , regional and national or international perspectives of globalization ; focussing on the diplomatically diversified and sovereignty based branching out territories and the additional territories developed by ethical differentiation and development ( e.g. Political territories as Countries , Sovereign / Autonomous /Semi-Sovereign land dimensions , Free states and so on )among the mass people in different reasons in the globe ; within the purview of United Nations spherical territorial, oceanic or riverine agenda and mandate .

    Such global achievements under the purview of United Nations and World Bank Group might be mediated by diplomatic collaboration and cooperation with the government sectors , private sectors ; quasi-public assemblings which seems to be summation of bureaucratic-intellectual-capitalistic impact , among democratic and republic ministerially demarcated political land masses (e.g. varieties of political territories ) . As long as , such regions are internally moderated by diversified dynamic ethics of mass people , endorsed by native indigenous and globalized traditions, cultures , in this scanty international world facing the compact global challenges …..

    Thanking You ,
    Sincerely Yours’

    I shall be happy to know more about ” Worlds Most Recognizable Political Stages ” which stages should be undertaken in order to achieve the Goals and Strategies of United Nations . History reveals us about the ensuing direction of the globe . So , it may be better effective , if we proceed for achieving the objectives , goals and strategies of United Nations , by segregating the confined , scanty globe through the following mentioned political stages .

    I think , it is possible to divide and differentiate the worlds most recognizable political stages as ” Political stage of South-East Asia , Political stages of BRICS Countries , Political stages of Arab League , Political stages of African Union , Political stages Caribbean Communities , Political stages of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC ) , Political stages of European Union and so on with regards to diplomatic coordinating and collaborating relationships with World Bank Group , Asian Development Bank , African Development Bank Group , Islamic Development Bank , European Central Bank and so on ; within the global and international view and purview of United Nations . Such inceptional stages should be moderated and operationalized by ethic based traditions , cultures , ethnicity impacted by economic , indigenous and immigrational socio-political science of the people at the local level , in case of all such international political organizations , with the international institutional view of the concerned organisations .


    The comment of Eloy E Escalante Sr . has been mentioned below . I think , the reply of his answers may be visible in my comments in near future :

    I Ask: What IS D United Nations Doing For The Christians Who are Persecuted in China; For The Atrocities Committed Against The Uighurs, Which May Well Amount To A Genocide; For The Repression in Hong Kong Or in Tibet?
    It’s Been Too Long For The Millions Of Uighurs in Prison Camps, Slavery, Or Under Orwellian Surveillance; Too Long For The Churches Which Are Bulldozed, Closed, Under Surveillance, Or Whose Crosses Are Torn Down And Priests and Pastors Jailed; Too Long For Prisoners Of Conscience Whose Organs Are Harvested; Too Long For Hong Kong, Whose Freedoms Are Being Rapidly Dismantled. Is D United Nations Doing It’s Work?

    I Ask: Why Did Great Britain NOT give Hong Kong Independence? Regardless of What Agreement They had with China. N Why Did Hong Kong Not Fight For Independence? Is D United Nations Doing Anything For These People?

    It also High Time for the U N To Recognize these Nations, mentioned Below, As What they Are: Sovereign Nations: forgetting D Past, pushing for D Future, N Keeping D Peace.

    1. Kosovo.

    2. South Ossetia & Abkhazia.

    3. Nagorno-Karabakh.

    4. Transnistria or the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic.

    5. New Russia or the Union of People’s Republics.

    6. The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

    7. The Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic.

    8. Taiwan

    May Liberty of Soul N Mind N Body, Respect, Common Sense, N D Love for Peace Prevail.
