Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed skepticism and critique in response to US President Joseph Biden's assertion regarding the United States' ambition to establish a new world order. Lavrov, in an interview with RT, characterized Biden's vision as indicative of a "superiority complex" and criticized what he perceived as an "insufficient analysis of the situation." Lavrov contended that the West has historically assumed a role of decision-making for the entire world for over five centuries, emphasizing that this era is now reaching its conclusion, as reported by Sputnik.
He implied a need for a more inclusive global approach, signaling a shift away from unilateral Western dominance. Furthermore, Lavrov advocated for reform within the United Nations Security Council, highlighting the necessity to adapt to the evolving geopolitical landscape shaped by multipolarity.
He argued that the current composition of the Security Council, dominated by Western representatives, does not accurately reflect the emergence of new global players. "In light of multipolarity, numerous new actors have assumed key positions, and it is imperative that these shifts are duly represented in the Security Council," Lavrov emphasized.
The Russian Foreign Minister underscored the challenge posed by the disproportionate number of Western representatives within the Council, suggesting that a rebalancing is essential to address the contemporary geopolitical realities.
Lavrov's remarks suggest a call for a more inclusive and representative international framework that accommodates the perspectives and interests of a diverse array of global actors, echoing a sentiment of the need for a truly multipolar world order.
The diplomat stated that the United States of America accepts any Russian initiative to end the conflict in the Middle East as hostile. "Everything that comes from Russia is understood as a hostile act, as a hostile initiative.
But, in fact, Washington does not want to restrain Israel," Lavrov stated. He pointer that in the wake of heightened tensions in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Russia swiftly proposed a United Nations Security Council resolution urging a ceasefire in Gaza.
Regrettably, the United States opposed and blocked this crucial diplomatic initiative, hindering immediate efforts for peace and stability in the region.
