MOSCOW, September 27. /TASS/. At the 70th session of UN General Assembly, Russian President Vladimir Putin will speak about reforming the United Nations, call for uniting efforts in fighting against terrorism and assess the current situation in international relations, he told US journalist Charlie Rose in an interview with CBS and PBS.
"Of course, I will have to say a few words about the present day, about the evolving international situation, about the fact that the United Nations remains the sole universal international organisation designed to maintain global peace. And in this sense it has no alternative today," Putin said. "It is also apparent that it should adapt to the ever-changing world, which we discuss all the time: how it should evolve and at what rate, which components should undergo qualitative changes," the president added.
"I will certainly mention some facts from the history of the United Nations," he continued. "Now I can already tell you that the decision to establish the United Nations was taken in our country at the Yalta Conference," the Russian leader reminded.
Putin also stressed that he is certain "that virtually everyone speaking from the United Nations platform is going to talk about the fight, about the need to fight terrorism." "And I cannot avoid this issue, either," he noted. "Today, terrorism threatens a great number of states, a great number of people - hundreds of thousands, millions of people suffer from its criminal activity. And we all face the task of joining our efforts in the fight against this common evil," Putin explained.
"Of course, I will have to or rather should use this international platform to explain Russia's vision of today's international relations, as well as the future of this organisation and the global community," the Russian president emphasized.
Though naming several topics that his forthcoming speech will focus on, Putin preferred not to uncover all details of his participation in the 70th session of UN General Assembly that will take place on Monday.
