MOSCOW, October 23. /TASS/. The Kremlin endorses US President Joe Biden’s statement that the world is in need of a new order, but Moscow does not agree that such an order can be built under the auspices of Washington alone, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media.
"We absolutely agree with Mr. Biden. This is a rare occasion when we absolutely agree with what he said. Indeed, the world is in need of a new order, [but one] based on entirely different principles [than what the US promotes]," he said.
The Kremlin believes that any future world order must be free of any attempts to concentrate all control mechanisms in the hands of a single country and of all attempts by a single power to impose its will and its decisions on other countries.
"There should be a world order based on international law, not on 'rules.' It should be based on mutual respect, mutual benefit, non-interference in each other's internal affairs, and so on," Peskov enumerated.
The Kremlin disagrees, however, with Biden on the other part of his statement, Peskov continued.
"Mr. Biden also said that the United States is capable of building such an order. We disagree with this part of his statement," Peskov said.
He stressed that the US, "one way or another, whatever world order it may be talking about, has a US-centric world order in mind."
"That is, a world that revolves around the United States. This will no longer be the case," he stated.
