Ambassador of Russian Federation in Australia Alexey Pavlovsky Friday reiterated that Russia will continue to play its critical role for global peace and stability and stressed for respect of universally recognized principles and norms of international law without exception.
On the occasion of 80th anniversary of the outbreak of the World War II, Ambassador Pavlovsky in his statement said it will be appropriate to remind who pushed the world toward calamity of the World War II and who tried to prevent it.
“At a time when storm clouds were gathering over Europe, the Western capitals – in the hope of staying safe at the expense of others – made a selfish and extremely short-sighted choice in favour of appeasing the Hitler regime. The Munich Agreement of 1938 was the apotheosis of this policy”, he reminded.
Quoting great Russian historian Vasily Klyuchevsky who said, “history punishes those who do not learn its lessons”, Ambassador Pavlovsky warned that attempts to establish global hegemony are horrible and harmful as the international community is facing dangerous challenges and threats.
He emphasized to get back to the difficult work of creating an architecture of equal and indivisible security and broad cooperation of sovereign states in the Euro-Atlantic and Eurasia.
“Reliance on universally recognized principles and norms
of international law is critical for success, which must be strictly observed by all participants of state-to-state relations without exception”, Russian Ambassador stressed.
Referring various global conflicts, he said Russia will continue to work to improve the global situation and will contribute in every way to achieving political and diplomatic solutions to the numerous crises and conflicts in the world.
