Russia, as a permanent member of the Security Council, can veto the decisions of this UN body, which are aimed at counteracting its own crimes.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu stressed that his country is in favor of abolishing the right of veto in the UN Security Council system.
The Turkish state agency Anadolu writes about this .
According to Cavusoglu, more and more politicians say that “the world is more than five permanent members of the UN Security Council.” He is convinced that the current session of the UN General Assembly has proved that the call of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to reform the organization is supported by more and more countries.
In his opinion, a replacement for the right of veto could be the introduction of decision-making by majority vote. The main thing should be to ensure maximum coverage and fairness, the head of the Foreign Ministry is convinced.
Commenting on the announcement in Russia, which is a permanent member of the UN Security Council, of partial mobilization, Cavusoglu stressed that this decision does not bring the war in Ukraine closer to an end.
“We are in favor of dialogue and negotiations with the participation of the presidents of the two countries. The negative impact of the war between the Russian Federation and Ukraine is experienced by everyone and in all areas,” he said.
