FM: We need a bloc of the like-minded to make international law top priority again

MINSK, 7 April (BelTA) - The principles of international law should again be placed at the core of interstate relations, Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei told the media after the Security Council meeting on 7 April, BelTA has learned.

“We believe that the principles based on international law should be made top priority. These are the principles that used to be sacred in interstate relations. Today we are witnessing a total departure from these principles by the supporters of the ‘liberal' West, when they preach something unacceptable to us, denying the very possibility of states having the right for their own independent way of development, taking into account the differences that exist between countries and peoples,” said Vladimir Makei.

According to the minister, many states will now wait, looking around to see how the situation will be unfolding. “We believe that we must now set up a bloc of like-minded states, form a circle of supporters in international organizations, in the international arena, and take concrete steps that would be aimed at bringing back from oblivion those immutable principles enshrined in the UN Charter, various international treaties and agreements. I do not rule out that such a meeting may take place here, at the Palace of Independence, sooner or later. We will also be working in this direction,” the Belarusian minister of foreign affairs said.
