Prince Albert at the UN

Prince Albert took part in the opening of the General Debate of the 72nd session of the General Assembly of the United Nations on Tuesday, September 19. Before delivering his speech, the Sovereign Prince submitted the Ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The Government of the Principality has made "support for persons with disabilities a priority" through its international cooperation policy, while in the Principality legal recognition "seeks to provide persons with disabilities with greater autonomy so that they may participate actively in the development of Monegasque society throughout their lives,” the Prince has said. He also met the President of the Republic of Colombia, HE Juan Manuel Santos and the Prime Minister of the Republic of Cabo Verde, HE Ulisses Correia e Silva, in the framework of the scientific campaign of the Explorations of Monaco. The Sovereign Prince took part in the lunch offered to the Heads of Delegation by HE Antonio Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations. The President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, presented the preliminary draft of the Global Compact for the Environment. Prince Albert has said he wishes to express his great interest in this document with a universal and binding application which recognises the right of future generations to sustainable development and aims to institute a follow-up mechanism composed of independent experts. He recalled that the Bruntland Report and the Stockholm Conference of 1972 constituted the birth of environmental law, and that the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, better known as "Rio 1992”, took on the pre-existing concept of sustainable development, as well as the principles included in the French project: prevention, precaution, compensation for damage, information and participation. Indeed, environmental law is unique in that over time it has developed through the adoption of national legislation, sectoral international conventions, case law of state or supra-national courts and documents adopted at United Nations summits. The Sovereign Prince will therefore give the utmost attention to the future of the Pact, which aims to establish a global partnership on a new and equitable basis. In the evening, Prince Albert was expected to attend the traditional reception hosted by the President of the host country of the United Nations, Donald and Melania Trump. The day before, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Principality of Monaco to the US and Canada,HE Maguy Maccario, accompanied Prince Albert on his first visit to Westpoint, the US Military Academy. Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco visited the institution in 1956. "The Sovereign received a warm and most impressive welcome," Ms Maccario Doyle commented.

Monaco submits nuclear treaty papers

Three countries took key actions on Monday, September 18, to strengthen nuclear safety and security, the Monaco-based International Atomic Energy Agency said. On the margins of the IAEA General Conference, Bolivia, Monaco and Syria each deposited a legal document related to treaties under the IAEA’s auspices. “I am very pleased that this Treaty Event provides an opportunity for countries to present instruments expressing consent to be bound by these important treaties,” said IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano at the event. This year, the event focused on the Amendment to the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material (CPPNM), the Convention on Nuclear Safety (CNS), and the Joint Convention on the Safety of Soent Fuel Management and on the Safety of Radioactive Waste Management (Joint Convention). “Universal implementation of the amended Convention will help to ensure that nuclear material and facilities throughout the world are properly protected against malicious acts by terrorists,” Mr Amano said. Isabelle Berro Amadeï, Permanent Representative of Monaco to the IAEA, deposited the instrument of acceptance of the CPPNM Amendment on behalf of her country. During this year’s Treaty Event, representatives from several Member States were also briefed on the treaties featured at the Event, including on their implementation. “Ratifying these treaties is important for Member States, but even more vital is their implementation, for which the IAEA stands ready to help,” Mr Amano said in conclusion.

Before, during, and after the Monaco Yacht Show, traffic on boulevard Louis II and access to the bus shelter of the Kennedy bus stop will be very difficult from September 18 to October 8. The Monaco Bus Company, CAM, has moved the bus stop about 100 metres upstream, before the "Cedez-le-passage" sign throughout this period. A provisional red post indicates the temporary location of the stop. The temporary stop will also allow easier access to the show itself.

Ryanair relents on cancellation warnings

Ryanair

Europe’s biggest low-cost airline, Ryanair, has relented in the face of widespread anger and agreed to publish a list of flights due to be cancelled over the next few weeks.

Previously the airline had refused to do so. The cancellations, which Ryanair has said will affect fewer than two percent of its passengers, have been made in order to improve punctuality, the airline said. On-time arrivals had recently fallen to below 80 percent

The airline has also blamed its cancellations on its own miscalculations of leave due to pilots.

Ryanair does not have a major presence at Nice Airport, but uses Marseille as its hub in the South of France. While the Irish airline does not seem too bothered by its public image, which is once again in a nose dive, it is usually among the first to complain about strikes by French air traffic controllers.
