The “excessive representation of the West” in decision-making should be limited to create a more balanced world order, with more input from the global east and south, according to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
“Efforts to bring more democracy to international relations and affirm a polycentric world order include reforming the UN Security Council by strengthening it with Asian, African, and Latin American countries, and ending the anomaly with the excessive representation of the West in the UN’s main body,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov wrote.
Lavrov also expressed the view that Russia was offering a unifying agenda in international affairs, and that Moscow was open for fair dialogue with any nation that was seeking a balance of interest.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov wrote:
“We will persist in promoting the emergence of an international-relations culture based on the supreme values of justice and [the] enabling [of] all countries, large and small, to develop in peace and freedom. We will always remain open to honest dialogue with anyone who demonstrates a reciprocal readiness to find a balance of interests firmly rooted in international law. These are the rules we adhere to.”
