International law needs to be seriously reformed, said State Duma deputy Alexander Sidyakin of the United Russia party during an international parliamentary forum in Moscow on Thursday. He added that international law contained two conflicting principles — the principle of territorial integrity and the principle of nationalities' right to self-determination.
“I support the proposal for holding an international conference to negotiate reforms of major international institutions, which make decisions today and draw up an agenda determining, among other things, global security,” Sidyakin said, adding that it was impossible to talk about sustainable development of institutions of international law without a serious reform.
“This refers also to the United Nations' Security Council, comprising five states [permanent members of the UN Council — Britain, China, Russia, the United States and France],” he said. “It is unclear why India, Brazil, Spain and South Africa are not in the UN Council [as permanent members] now. It is not clear why the UN Council refuses without any criticism at all to consider the attack on the Russian embassy in Kiev.”
