9 WASHINGTON, D.C. June 16, 2000 (9:00 p.m. EDT) In the nearly five years that I have been Canada's Foreign Affairs Minister, a shift has occurred in what it means to be secure. As a result, the language of international affairs has begun to change. No longer are we limited to discussions of states' rights and national sovereignty. Protecting civilians, war-affected children, the threat of terrorism and of drugs, open borders and infectious diseases are now among the integral aspects of the dialogue. This shift in language reflects a change in perception - a recognition that the needs of individuals must be our principal concern. We arrived at this point via the broader realization that there is a changing world reality. This recognition has resulted in the evolution of Canadian foreign policy and the formulation of the many aspects of what we have termed our human security agenda &q=lloyd+axworthy&hl=en NOTES FOR AN ADDRESS BY THE HONOURABLE LLOYD AXWORTHY MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS TO THE WOODROW WILSON INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR SCHOLARS

18 N. Korea appears ready to escalate nuclear tensions: Rice Last Updated: Saturday, October 21, 2006 | 4:55 PM ET CBC News U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says China's special envoy to Pyongyang said nothing to her about a reported North Korean pledge to refrain from further nuclear tests. South Korean and Japanese news reports have suggested North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il indicated in a meeting with Chinese official Tang Jiaxuan this week that he was planning no further nuclear tests. But on Saturday morning, Rice told reporters travelling with her to Moscow that she had heard nothing to suggest Kim either apologized for the test or said that he would never test again. Rice said she was given a "thorough" briefing from Tang while visiting Beijing on Friday, but came away believing Pyongyang is not ready to back down from its nuclear program. "The North Koreans, I think, would like to see an escalation of the tension," Rice said.
