UNITED NATIONS, June 12 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia stands for “consistent and well-balanced approaches” to the United Nations’ peacekeeping activities, Russian’s Permanent Representative at the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said on Wednesday at debates at the U.N. Security Council dedicated to the current tendencies in the United Nations’ peacekeeping activities.
According to Churkin, United Nations peacekeeping operations are often held in conditions on domestic political crises complicated by a difficult humanitarian and socio-economic situation. Coming to the fore, in his words, are such challenges as trans-border weapon smuggling, organized crime, terrorism, and drug trafficking. These factors affect adversely “not only specific attributes of the United Nations’ peacekeeping activities but, in some cases, their principles,” he stressed.
