Lavrov spoke about the importance of the veto right in the UN Security Council

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said that the right of veto in the UN Security Council will go nowhere.

The right of veto is one of the support pillars of the UN Security Council, it will not go anywhere, but the body has obvious flaws. This was stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a press conference after talks with UN Secretary General António Guterres. The quote is given by the correspondent of “Lenta.ru”.

As for the resolution [о праве вето постоянных членов Совета Безопасности]submitted to the General Assembly [ООН], this (and this is clearly stated) is not related to and will not influence in any way the negotiations that have been going on for many years on the reform of the Security Council. The veto right is not going anywhere, I can confirm it responsibly”, said the minister about the importance of the decision-making mechanism.

The minister also named the main flaw of the UN Security Council. “We have repeatedly said that the Security Council must get rid of its main flaw: the dominance of a group of countries. Of the 15 seats, six belong to Western countries and their allies,” Lavrov summarized.

Earlier, the Russian Foreign Minister said that the United States and other Western countries are trying to devalue the veto power in the UN Security Council by transferring its prerogatives to the UN Security Council in the General Assembly, “where wringing their hands, blackmailing, threats, even threats that are related to the places where the bank accounts are kept, the delegations, the places of education of their children, (…) they obtain a forced majority, obtained by force.
