VILNIUS, December 6 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow is very much concerned over the illegal use of resolutions of the U.N. Security Council, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting of foreign ministers here on Tuesday.
“The deliberate use of resolutions of the U.N. Security Council for illegal purposes, the attempts to interfere in domestic conflicts in support of one of the conflicting parties, including with the use of force, under the pretext of ‘responsibility for protection’ evoke serious concern. We are facing the use of double standards in approaches to various crisis situations,” Lavrov stressed.
“All this may lead to grave consequences. The deviation from the principle of the supremacy of law, no matter under what noble pretexts this is done, will inevitable undermine global and regional security and will destroy the foundation, on which the whole system of international relations is built,” he believes.
