WASHINGTON: US President Joe Biden, addressing the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday, said he would try to rally the world against Russia’s attack on Ukraine, saying that Moscow’s war against its neighbor violates the tenets of the UN Charter that established the post-World War II era. the body

Biden left on Tuesday to join a meeting of world leaders in New York. He will have his first personal meeting with new British Prime Minister Liz Truss on Wednesday and attend a summit aimed at gathering pledges to help countries battling the disease.

White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said Biden would not use his speech to advocate removing Russia as a member of the UN Security Council, where it is one of five permanent members that can veto any security resolution.

But he said Biden would urge all countries to recognize that Russia’s war on Ukraine is a violation of the UN’s 1945 charter signed by countries that fought the Axis powers in World War II.

UN members, aiming to “save future generations from war” and to set the conditions for countries to “live together in peace”, pledge to “refrain from the threat or use of force in their international relations against the territorial integrity or political independence of any State, or in any other manner contrary to the interests of the United Nations”. shall be,” reads the charter.

“It doesn’t matter how each country feels about it, Russia, Ukraine, the United States, everyone should be able to center around this basic proposition: You can’t conquer your neighbor’s territory by force, and peace will come faster and more decisively if Russia abandons that effort,” Sullivan said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said the West wants to destroy Russia, that economic sanctions imposed on Moscow in response to the conflict are tantamount to a declaration of economic war, and that Russia is forging ties with other powers such as China and India.

Putin said the Ukraine war was necessary because the expansion of NATO, the US-led Western military alliance, represented an existential threat to Russia.

But Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi told Putin last week that now was not the time for war, and Chinese President Xi Jinping expressed questions and concerns about the situation when the two leaders met last week.

Sullivan said that every country should make a case against Russia’s war.

“They can do it publicly if they like, they can do it privately if they like, but at this point sending a clear and unambiguous message to Moscow is the most important thing we can do collectively to bring peace to the region,” he said. .
