UNITED NATIONS, September 24. /TASS/. Western sanctions are aimed, directly or indirectly, against virtually all the remaining countries of the world and should be lifted immediately, Belarusian Foreign Minister Sergey Aleynik told the 78th session of the UN General Assembly.
"Unilateral coercive measures, imposed by the West are aimed against the rest of the world, directly or indirectly. They should be lifted immediately. This is necessitated by the common sense and shared interests of all humankind," the top Belarusian diplomat said.
He added that Western countries have been imposing their unilateral sanctions in violation of the UN Charter.
"The countries that are putting barriers need to remove them. This applies not just to food security, but to all areas of global affairs as well," Aleynik said.
