US President Barack Obama has said that developing nations would have to help themselves and not completely depend on aid from developed world, which itself is struggling with financial crisis.
“To developing countries, this must be your moment of responsibility as well. We want you to prosper and succeed -it’s in your interest, and it’s in our interest,” Obama told the Millennium Development Goals summit at the United Nations.
“We want to help you realise your aspirations. But there is no substitute for your leadership. Only you and your people can make the tough choices that will unleash the dynamism of your country. Only you can make the sustainable investments that improve the health and well-being of your people.
