MOSCOW, September 2 (Itar-Tass) - A polycentric system of international relations is forming in the world but not all countries are prepared to accept it, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“Complex processes are taking place in the world, they have just started and there is a long way to go before they are completed, but it is clear that they will lead to the emergence of a polycentric system of international relations based on the consensus of civilizations, mutual respect and international law,” the minister said at a traditional meeting with students and faculty members of Moscow’s University of International Relations on Monday, September 2.
Once the polycentric system is formed, “the world will use shared values from all religions: striving for the good, decency, freedom, responsibility, and respect for the elderly,” he added.
“Attempts to interpret these values in its own way are made by those who do not want to lose leading positions our Western colleagues have been holding for centuries,” Lavrov said.
A new world order will require “fairer and more democratic systems where economic growth centers and new financial power centres should play a greater role in managing the world economy and political processes,” the minister said. “Hence the task to reform the international currency and financial system and the United Nations, including its Security Council,” he added.
