UNITED NATIONS, February 23. /TASS/. The United Nations Security Council should become an effective site for working out collective will of the international community, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Monday at the Open Debate in the UN Security Council.
The debate was dedicated to "Maintenance of International Peace and Security: Reflect on History, reaffirm the strong Commitment to the Purpose and Principles of the Charter of the United Nations".
Lavrov said "the topic suggested for discussion is urgent: on the eve of the UN’s 70th anniversary, it allows us to critically assess the state of international relations and discuss ways to overcome accumulated systemic problems and correct them before it is too late."
It is necessary to take measures to reject double standards in world politics, Russian Foreign Minister went on to say.
"We believe it is necessary to immediately take decisive measures to reject double standards in world politics, to return the Security Council the role of a leading body on coordination of collective approaches relying upon respect for the cultural and civilizational diversity of the modern world, democratization of international relations," Lavrov said.
