MOSCOW./TASS/. Fundamental principles of the UN Charter, including peaceful settlement of conflicts and non-interference in internal affairs, are especially topical at the moment, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday receiving credentials from foreign ambassadors.
Putin said a jubilee session of the UN General Assembly was due in New York in September. "The international community will mark the 70th anniversary of the United Nations," the president said.
"It was together with anti-Hitler coalition allies that we managed to create this unique structure, lay the basis for the post-war world order," he said.
"The fundamental principles reflected in the UN Charter - equality of sovereign states, non-interference in internal affairs, a peaceful settlement of disputes - were literally hard won by the humankind," he said.
"In line with them, Russia will keep contributing in every possible way to ensuring stability and security in international affairs," the president said.
"And we will keep developing friendly relations with all partners - in the West and in the East, taking part in work on collective solutions to global and regional problems," he said.
