 We will initiate stripping Russia of veto right at UN General Assembly session, Poroshenko says

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has called for discussing the deprivation of Russia's veto right at the UN Security Council at the session of the UN General Assembly in September.

Poroshenko said at the annual meeting of the Yalta European Strategy (YES) in Kyiv Sept. 11, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"It is time to pool efforts in order to reform and improve the institutions and instruments which are bound to serve the principles and norms of international law, i.e. the veto right of Russia at the UN Security Council. Russia's aggression against Ukraine has vividly demonstrated the shortcomings of this mechanism. Hopefully, we will launch a related debate at the forthcoming 70th session of the UN General Assembly," he said.
