祝・オバマ大統領ノーベル平和賞受賞

リーダーシップ

In a stunning surprise, the Nobel Committee announced in Oslo that it has awarded the annual prize to the president “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” The award cited in particular Mr. Obama’s effort to reduce the world’s nuclear arsenal.

“He has created a new international climate,” the committee said.

He has vowed to pursue a world without nuclear arms, as he did in a speech in Prague earlier this year, reached out to the Muslim world, delivering a major speech in Cairo in June, and sought to restart peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians.

ニューヨークタイムズの記事より。
「核兵器なき世界」へのビジョンを打ち出し、国際社会のコンセンサスをとりつけ、異なる世界との対話を増進したオバマ大統領のノーベル平和賞受賞を、心からお祝いしたい。受賞式のスピーチもとても楽しみ。
