UNITED NATIONS, October 1. /TASS/. The resolution on countering illegal migration that flooded Europe can be adopted in the foreseeable future, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a press conference on Thursday.
"We are satisfied with the draft resolution that now, in its current state, after many rounds of negotiations, has acquired the right form, in our opinion," Lavrov said. "It is constructed with respect to international law, its wordings rule out expanded interpretation of the mandate that the resolution contains," he added.
"I hope that other UN Security Council members who have questions left for other parts of the document, will be able to coordinate them with co-authors, and we will adopt this resolution in the foreseeable future," the foreign minister noted.
Russia is confident that the United Nations Organization has proved its effectiveness, Sergey Lavrov went on to say.
"UN proved its effectiveness as an efficient instrument of settling conflicts and responding to global challenges," he noted.
