Putin: International laws binding for everybody, not at random
MOSCOW, July 1 (RAPSI) - International laws must apply to everyone rather than be enforced selectively to serve certain interests, President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting of ambassadors and presidential envoys.
“We support the supremacy of international law with the United Nations preserving a leading role. International law must apply to everyone rather than be selectively applied to serve the interests of certain countries or groups of countries,” Putin said.
He added that in its foreign policy, Russia “is consistently looking for solutions to global and regional problems not through confrontation but through partnership.”
Countries should see each other not just as competitors but also as partners, and work on cooperation with other states, he added.
“These are our integration principles within the CIS. Developing strong friendly relations and mutually beneficial economic cooperation with our neighbors is a key strategy of Russia’s foreign policy in the long term,” the President said.
