President Barack Obama's First Address to the UN General Assembly Meeting in New York

US president, Barack Obama, outlined his vision of a new world order in which the US would participate fully - during his first address to the UN general Assembly meeting in New York.

His vision was rooted on four basic principles: Non proliferation and disarmament, the promotion of peace and security, the preservation of the planet, and a global economy that advances opportunity for all people.

Among the speakers that followed was the leader of Libya - Muammar Gaddafi, and the UN secretary-general, Ban Ki-Moon.

Al Jazeera's Mike Hanna reports from New York on the days events.
