MOSCOW, March 16 (Itar-Tass) — Russia calls for the UN Security Council to approve a resolution to investigate the trade in human organs in Kosovo, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after the negotiations with his Serbian counterpart Vuk Jeremic here on Friday.
“We call for the UN Security Council to approve a relevant resolution. It is necessary for the investigation to be all-embracing and unbiased,” the minister noted. “I pin high hopes that our Western partners, who do not show much enthusiasm in the issue, will change their position after all. We are aware that Western countries are proud of their position in the protection of human rights, everywhere, in any cases. Therefore, I hope to avoid double standards, moreover, in this case this is not just a blatant violation of all possible human rights, but also the full encroachment on the human moral values and spirituality,” Lavrov pointed out.
The minister noted that Russia will seek the UN Security Council to take the wait-and-see position on this issue.
