MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Lavrov pointed out that in light of the currently troubled situation in the international arena it was necessary to negotiate and find compromises that could create long-term, stable relations.
"BRICS members are strongly committed to the fundamental principles and norms of international law. We speak in support of strengthening the central coordinating role of the United Nations in world affairs, and do not accept attempts to solve problems from a position of power, interference in internal affairs, pressure of some countries on others, including the imposition of unilateral sanctions," Lavrov said at a BRICS Global University Summit (GUS).
"The attempts to carry out the geopolitical engineering, overthrow undesirable regimes led to the destruction of security mechanisms, chaos, anarchy, risk of the states’ collapse and the seizure of their territories by terrorists," Lavrov stressed.
BRICS is an association of five major developing economies, comprising Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
