Use of force without UN causes chaos, says Putin
MOSCOWRussian President Vladimir Putin has criticized as unacceptable attempts to use force in circumvention of the Umited Nations Charter.
“Without the support of international law, it is impossible to carry out affairs in the modern world. Attempts to replace the universal principles of the U.N. Charter by unilateral actions or bloc agreements or even more so by the use of force in circumvention of the U.N. without approval, will lead to no good,” Putin said, speaking at a ceremony for the presentation of foreign ambassadors’ credentials, Ria Novosti news agency reported.
“Such actions are fraught with destabilization and chaos,” he said. It is unacceptable to provoke violence in “hot spots” in an effort to achieve regime change, especially in the Middle East and North Africa, Putin warned.
