Makei: New world order needed to stop military conflicts

MINSK, 5 October (BelTA) – The international community needs to seriously consider a new world order that would help stop military conflicts, Belarus’ Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei said in an interview with UN Radio, the text of which was posted on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus, BelTA has learned.

“There is an urgent need to settle the conflicts that are taking place in various parts of the world. We hear hundreds of thousands of words but we do not see concrete action, especially from the major geopolitical players, on whom the situation depends. Therefore we need to give a serious thought to ‘a new world order’ that would help stop these conflicts,” Vladimir Makei said.

According to him, the UN as a universal platform for global discussion and decision-making, should talk about conceptual things, identify priorities. These priorities should be understandable to ordinary people. What matters most now? We hear that the world is torn by conflict: wars, inter-religious and inter-ethnic conflicts. Now the most important things for people are peace, security, and sustainable development. We think this is what we should be talking about,” Vladimir Makei believes.

“We should be talking not about technicalities related to our approaches to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals that the Heads of State adopted last year and which are to be achieved by 2030. We need to talk about what needs to be done to achieve these goals,” the Belarusian minister said.
