24.10.2012 - Interview of the Russian Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko to the UNA-UK magazine “New World” on the occasion of the UN Day

What are your top UN priorities for the 67th General Assembly session? Russia believes that the session should reiterate the commitment of all States to multilateral approaches in global politics and to establishing a unifying agenda for collective engagement in addressing global challenges. Today, multilateralism, with the United Nations at the heart of the international system, has no alternative. We will stress the need to intensify efforts aimed at strengthening the legal framework of international relations and promoting the rule of international law, including universal interpretation and application of treaties and United Nations decisions, including those made by the Security Council. Russia will call upon strict compliance with the United Nations Charter, including the status and powers of the Security Council as the principal body responsible for maintaining international peace and security. The very first resolution adopted at the current session, namely the Declaration on the Rule of Law and the National and International Levels, has become a major achievement in this regard.
