The unipolar world order has ceased to exist and the longtime practice of using one country’s laws on the territory of another should be ended, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview on Venezuelan state television on Thursday.
Now, all should be done in line with the UN Charter, decisions of the UN Security Council and international agreements.
“Old habits die hard. Parting with one’s sense of global dominion is not easy and this process is going to be long and painful, but I’m sure that in the long haul we’ll agree on the need to redistribute our responsibilities from conflict resolution to economics to finance and trade,” Lavrov said.
Russia is aimed to defend the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states.
Lavro also pointed out that Powerful new centers of economic growth are emerging in Asia and Latin America.
