    The United States has openly declared its right to use military force unilaterally, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the 69th session of the UN General Assembly on Saturday.

    UNITED NATIONS, September 27 (RIA Novosti) – The United States has openly declared its right to use military force unilaterally, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the 69th session of the UN General Assembly on Saturday.

    "Washington has openly declared its right to use military force unilaterally and wherever it sees fit in order to protect its own interests. Military involvement has become normal, even though all military operations launched by the United States in recent years have been unfortunate," Lavrov said.

    He mentioned operations in Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan as examples, and said that it is via great diplomatic efforts that the aggression against Syria in 2013 was stopped.

    "One cannot help but feel that the goal of various 'color revolutions' and other operations aimed at political regime change is to provoke chaos and instability," Lavrov added.
