Bolivian leader urges dissolution of UN Security Council - media

Bolivian President Evo Morales has urged the world community to bring an end to the UN Security Council as it is not meeting its goal of securing peace between states, the Bolivian ABI agency reports.

Saturday evening, Morales opened a meeting of the Group of 77 (G77) plus China in the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz. According to the organizers' plans, the final document produced by the summit should become the basis for the development of a new "agenda" of the UN.

"International organizations are required, which will contribute to the development of the world, the destruction of world hierarchies, and the equality of states. Therefore, the Security Council must disappear," said Morales. Instead of ensuring peace between peoples, he believes that the UN has supported military action and aggression by "imperial powers" to acquire the resources of countries harmed by intervention.

"Today, instead of the Security Council there is the Insecurity Council, the Council of imperial intervention," the agency quotes the Bolivian leader. Earlier, Morales said that mankind should take immediate and urgent measures to save "Mother Earth" and develop a new world order within the framework of the UN. He criticized the "imperial speculative model" of world development, which, according to him, had generated an institutional crisis, caused inequality and created an unfair power structure in international organizations, including the UN, IMF, WTO and others.

"We have reached the limit, it is necessary to take urgent decisions at the global level for the sake of saving the society, humanity and Mother Earth," the Bolivian leader said.

Evo Morales also invited Russia to join G77 saying that "to fulfill our tasks that benefit the world we urge Russia and other countries that are our brothers to join G77." He noted that if Russia decides to accept the invitation, the name of the bloc could be changed to G77 plus China and Russia.

The Group of 77 was established on June 15, 1964, by developing countries in order to promote their own economic interests. Originally it consisted of 77 members, now it consists of 133 states. Currently, G77 is the largest intergovernmental organization of developing countries operating under a UN framework.
