Address by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to the 69th session of the UN General Assembly

Distinguished Mr. Chairman,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

There is growing evidence of the contradiction between the need for collective, cooperative efforts to provide adequate responses to challenges common to all, and the aspirations of a number of countries for domination and the revival of archaic bloc thinking based on military drill discipline and the erroneous logic of “friend or foe.”

Against the backdrop of numerous reports about the production and use of chemical weapons by terrorists in Iraq and Syria, as well as the risk of this dangerous weapons of mass destruction falling into the hands of non-state militias in Iraq and Libya, the Russian delegation deemed it necessary to flag these risks and send a strong signal to all regional actors, that the use of chemical weapons by whomsoever will have consequences.

Mr Chairman,

I call upon our Security Council colleagues not to make the Security Council meeting into a farce, and to stop the frenzied hysteria.

We listened carefully to the briefing by Assistant Secretary-General for UN Political Affairs Mr Toyberg-Frandzen. We appreciate the information provided by Head of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine Mr Ertugrul Apakan, and Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office Ms Heidi Tagliavini.

Thank you, Mr Chairman,

I do not wish to engage in debates with the representative of Ukraine, but would nevertheless like to focus on just a few matters. I have already mentioned, and I reiterate, that a ceasefire and returning the situation to normalcy are our primary goals. This is something you have to believe in, and something you must strive for. Therefore, Mr Sergeyev, when we hear the statements that your representatives made in late October and early November, and recently, too, we have no confidence in Kiev being committed to a political and diplomatic solution to this conflict.

Mr. President,

The reform of the UN Security Council is one of the most important issues on the agenda of this world organization since it deals with the body which under the UN Charter bears the main responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. The efficiency of its work and the UN on the whole, and the architecture of international security will depend much on the final result of the reform of the Security Council.
