Obama addresses Syria crisis, Iran nuclear program at U.N. General Assembly

President Obama on Tuesday challenged the United Nations and its members to respond more actively to resolve the civil war in Syria, and announced that he would use the remainder of his time in office to pursue better relations with Iran in the hope of resolving the controversy surrounding that country’s nuclear program.

In a 50-minute address, Obama asserted that the United States would remain actively involved in the world, even as he pushes to end more than a dozen years of war and faces growing isolationist pressures at home. But Obama also called on other nations to do more, using Syria as an example of the wider challenges facing the world five years into his White House tenure.
