MOSCOW, June 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Any use of force in providing support to any country by another state requires approval from the UN Security Council, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich told a news briefing on Thursday following Iraq’s request for military assistance from the United States in view of a rapidly deteriorating situation in the country.
“I am certain that any measures involving the use of force, when one country is asking another for support, can be approved only by the UN Security Council,” Lukashevich said.
