UNITED NATIONS, September 27. /TASS/. The United Nations cannot be used to demonstrate anybody’s force, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Sunday at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit.
"I am deeply convinced that the United Nations must not be used to demonstrate anybody’s force. It only weakens the organization and ruins trust to it, running counter to its mere nature and purport," he said.
He said that being at the United Nations he cannot help speaking about the crisis of international structures. "It looks like their role is reduced to be a venue for disputes between states and often a tool to exert pressure on certain countries which fell in disfavor with those who rule the world," Lukashenko said.
The United Nations is passing lots of resolutions but their agreement fails to serve the task of consolidating the world community, to improve the life of nations, he said.
"Voting over, we divide into ‘friends’ and ‘foes.’ As a result, we have more mistrust and disunity," he said. "The United Nations must be a forum of cooperation but not confrontation of nations.".
