UNITED NATIONS, September 24. /TASS/. The United States and its European allies are an "empire of lies," which is eager to undertake commitments that it is not going to fulfill, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told the general political debate of the 78th General Assembly of the United Nations.
"The Americans and the Europeans, who are used to looking down their noses at the rest of the world, are eager to make promises and undertake commitments, including written and legally binding ones, but are reluctant to fulfill them," Lavrov said.
"As Russian President Vladimir Putin has said, the West is truly an ‘empire of lies,’" the top Russian diplomat continued.
Lavrov went on to say that many of those who spoke from the UN rostrum before him expressed the idea that "the planet is going through irreversible changes."
"A new world order is being born right before our very eyes," he added. "The future is taking shape in the process of a standoff between the global majority, which demands fairer distribution of global riches and advocates diversity within our civilization, and between the few who employ neo-colonial methods of subjugation in an attempt to save their fleeting dominance.".
