Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Samoa Tuilaepa Aiono Sailele Malielegaoi addressed the high level meeting on rule of law in the United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters Monday, Sept. 24, 2012

It was a unique occasion for all Member States, non-governmental organizations and civil society represented at the highest level, to discuss and agree on a forward looking agenda on strengthening the rule of law.

In his address PM Tuilaepa told the assembly that Samoa has no military forces and is not a member of any military grouping, thus Samoa's only guaranteed security is the strict observance of the rule of law, as well as Samoa's cultural institutions and its chiefly system.

He went on to highlight a few examples of how the independent nation is contributing to the strengthening of the rule of law.
