Obama Heads to United Nations With Mixed Foreign-Policy Record

Sep 19 , 2016

President Barack Obama makes his final appearance at the United Nations General Assembly this week, with the world looking far different from the one he envisioned taking shape under his leadership when he first addressed the annual gathering eight years ago.

From nuclear nonproliferation and Israeli-Palestinian peace to scaling back America’s war footing in the Middle East and engaging adversaries such as Iran and North Korea, the results of Mr. Obama’s efforts since 2009 are mixed, foreign-policy experts said.

He also arrives at the U.N. on Monday with a new cease-fire agreement with Russia on Syria on the verge of collapse, heightened concerns about North Korea after its recent nuclear test and new potential acts of domestic terrorism in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota.
