GENEVA, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Alexei Borodavkin, Russia’s permanent representative to the United Nations Office and other international organizations in Geneva, said on the occasion of Russian Diplomat’s Day on Monday that he wished his foreign partners to realize that bypassing the U.N. Security Council was unacceptable.
“I would like to thank everybody who supports the Russian diplomatic service and the Russian media,” Borodavkin said in an interview with Itar-Tass.
“I would wish our foreign partners a more clear and distinct understanding that in a new world set-up, which is now taking shape, will continue playing a vital role in the peaceful settlement of conflicts,” Borodavkin emphasized.
“I wish you to understand that Russia’s core interest lies in resolving complicated international problems on the basis of international law and accord,” Russia’s permanent representative went on to say.
“We wish that the world sees fewer recurrences of cold-war thinking and actions; attempts to solve international problems by force bypassing the United Nations Security Council and attempts to strengthen one’s own security to the detriment of the security of others,” Borodavkin added.
He is convinced that the Russian Foreign Ministry “has a high intellectual and professional potential”, which made it possible to reap a good “foreign policy harvest” last year.
