The United States, once attempted to close the UN, took the concept of the conquest of the majority of its structures. This opinion was expressed by head of the Department of information and press of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Maria Zakharova, RIA Novosti reported.
«Over the past decade and even a little more we saw different approaches of the US administration – and not Mr. Obama, but in the past – to the UN. There have been attempts, by the way, very bold, including the Obama administration, just close the UN is useless,» said Zakharov on the TV channel «Russia 24».
According to her, it was «as direct statements of some politicians», referring to the American establishment, and various leaks and corruption scandals, but then «there was an understanding that without such world lighthouse, as the UN… international law is impossible.»
As noted by the representative of the Russian foreign Ministry after the «started a new concept – not so much the collapse of the organization and the rejection of the organization itself» as «conquest is exactly what these words of the majority in a number of UN bodies».
According to Zakharova, the model of the US behavior contradicts the idea of the UN, «because it is the organization guaranteeing the balance of interests in the world, not a tool to promote the interests of one country».
