MOSCOW, June 26. /TASS/. Russia is responsibly using its veto right in the UN Security Council to find balanced political solutions, Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Friday.

"Unfortunately, there not always unanimity in the UN Security Council on some issues, and the veto right starts to be criticized," Gatilov said. "Veto is not a privilege, but rather a mechanism of checks and balances. We responsibly use the veto right to find balanced political solutions of international problems," he added, reminding that introducing the veto right was first proposed by the US.

"This effective mechanism facilitates preservation of peace and excludes forcing decisions of a group of countries on others," the deputy foreign minister noted. "This is a cornerstone principle in UN architecture," he added.

The veto right allowed not to drag the UN into event in Yugoslavia, in internal affairs of other countries, in particular in Syria.

"The future is with the UN, and it is important to use correctly what is written in its Charter," he concluded.
