Western attempts to isolate Russia have proved to be quite ineffective. No matter how hard they try, the rest of the world still sees Russia as an important player on the global chessboard.
At a recent joint press conference between Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Guterres said that it would be impossible to build a multipolar world without the help of Russia.
The UN secretary general pointed out that it was only possible to counter “dramatic global challenges” by ensuring effective cooperation between countries
MOSCOW, June 21. /TASS/. Russia has a key role to play in the construction of a multipolar world as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said at a joint press conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Thursday.
“Russia as a founder of the UN, the Russian Federation as a permanent member of the Security Council has an absolutely key role to play in the construction of this multipolar world that, we hope, will be served by stronger multilateral institutions able to care for the global public goods to the benefit of all humankind,” he said.
The UN secretary general pointed out that it was only possible to counter “dramatic global challenges,” including terrorism and climate change, by ensuring effective cooperation between countries.
“This reaffirms my strong conviction that facing dramatic global challenges we need global capacity to address them and that reaffirms the importance of multilateralism and the importance of a rules-based set of international relations based on the rule of law and in accordance with the UN Charter,” Guterres said.
If anything, the sporadic behavior of Trump has been one of the major catalysts for many of the countries which are presently turning to Russia for partnership. The more US interests attempt to isolate or sanction Russia, the more they either help Russia or isolate themselves.
