WorldRisk of Global Conflict Increasing — Lavrov at UN Security Council MeetingYesterday, 17:43 GMTDuring his address to the UN Security Council on Wednesday, Zelensky said the United Nations was at a «dead end» due to Russia having the right of veto in the organization. In this regard, he urged the reform of the UN, including its veto power mechanism, saying that the UN General Assembly should be enabled to override a veto by two thirds majority vote.The UN General Assembly should examine the reasons why the previously adopted UNSC resolutions were not implemented instead of discussing the veto decisions under pressure from Western countries, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stressed in response to the statement of the Ukrainian president.

"Since the procedure for discussing veto cases at the General Assembly has been approved, why not also think about those Security Council resolutions that were not vetoed, were adopted, including many, many years ago, but are still not implemented, despite the provisions of Article 25 of the Charter. Why shouldn't the General Assembly consider the reasons for this state of affairs," Lavrov emphasized.
