MOSCOW: Foreign interference in domestic conflicts is Road to World Chaos

MUNICH: The world community has the right to interfere in the settlement of domestic conflicts only on the basis of Chapter7 of the UN Charter.

“Naturally we do not rule out situations when the world community is forced to interfere with the purpose of preventing or removing threats to international peace and security. But this should be done in strict compliance with Article 7of the UN Charter,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the Munich security conference last Saturday.

Speaking of the moves of foreign players in relation to domestic conflicts Lavrov said: “Military-political instability in certain regions should not become a magnet for the use of force in conditions of the weakening of customary levers of influence of leading nations on international developments.”

“Support for some one side to a domestic conflict or another, outside attempts of imposing patterns of political systems is a dangerous road leading to the expansion of zones of instability and strengthening of elements of chaos in international relations. One doesn’t have to go far to find examples of that,” he said.
