MOSCOW, January 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia supports clear-cut rule of the game in international politics rather than individual regimes, including those in the Middle East and North Africa, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Thursday.
“We don’t support any regimes,” he told the Ekho Moskvy radio station, commenting on Russia’s position on the situation in the Middle East and North Africa. “We support clear rules of the game in international relations.”
“If the situation develops under the Iraqi or Libyan scenario, in the long run, we will lose what was paid by the blood shed by generations that went through World War II, that won this war and gave birth to the hope for a better world order, the hope that took shape in the United Nations Charter,” Ryabkov stressed. “We are fighting for the U.N. Charter, for international law and we never seek to protect any mythical authoritarian regimes.”
“We never turn a blind eye on violations of human rights, wherever they take place,” he added.
