Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov Delivers Speech at UN General Assembly


UNITED NATIONS, September 28 (RIA Novosti) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov delivered a speech during the 69th session of the UN General Assembly on September 27, touching upon such issues as US unilateral use of military power, the West’s unwillingness to cooperate with Russia, the situation in Ukraine and delays in Malaysia Airlines MH17 flight investigation, and access to the data on chemical weapons in Libya, among other things.

“Washington has openly declared its right to use military force unilaterally and wherever it sees fit in order to protect its own interests,” said Lavrov, talking about the policy of the United States. “Western alliance, led by the United States, while defending democracy and human rights, on the global arena assumes an opposite stance, disregarding the principle of the sovereign equality of states, as stipulated in the UN Charter, and trying to decide for others what is good and what is bad.”

The minister also added that it was becoming more apparent that there is a contradiction between the desire of certain countries to dominate and the need of collaborative efforts in the face of common challenges.
