MOSCOW, September 07, /ITAR-TASS/. The United States’ policy of regime changes in various countries of the world undermines global security and raises serious concerns as to the stability of the system of international coordinates, Russian Permanent Representative at the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said on Sunday.
Speaking at the Vesti Nedeli weekly news programme on Russia 1 television channel, Churkin drew attention to the situation in the Middle East and Africa, saying chaos there was excessive. “The situation in Libya is in a state of collapse, with the country being in a free fall state,” he said. “Libya triggered a similar reaction in Mali. The Central African Republic has collapsed of itself.”
“South Sudan became independent with U.S. support, but it has turned out that political forces inside the country are absolutely unready to cooperate with each other and, as a matter of fact, the country is still in a state of a civil war. The culmination is the situation with the Islamic State. It is a really unprecedented challenge,” Churkin said.
Touching on the unstable situation in Iraq, the Russian diplomat said that “Americans withdrew from there not having finished the job.” These examples, according to Churkin, only proved the thesis Russia had been repeatedly voicing: “Such sloven geopolitical engineering, changes of regimes without looking at possible consequences has the most serious consequences.”
“Many United Nations members are concerned that the system of international coordinates we have got used to in the past 20 years and that rested on the principle that key players should cooperate with each other in settling difficult international problems, this system has now been distorted,” he said.
