President Sauli Niinistö supports the idea of modernising the UN with people’s needs as the starting point. He is, however, aware that it takes more than words to modernise the organisation. Mr Niinistö spoke to reporters in New York and commented also on the international climate agreement and US President Donald Trump’s stance. He mentioned that in his own discussion with Mr Trump he avoided using the word climate change and instead discussed the Arctic and fighting black coal emission which fall under the category of fighting climate change.
