I’ve reported on this previously but I’ve just had a renewed flush of love for that country. Let’s hear it for Russia.
“There is an eminently reasonable and feasible way to avoid conflict in the Persian Gulf, and to secure peace. The principles of multilateralism and international law must be adhered to. It seems almost astounding that one has to appeal for such obvious basic norms.
Fortunately, Russia has presented a roadmap for implementing a security concept in the vital waterway based on the above principles.”
“One thing for sure is that the US proposal for a naval coalition led by Washington, purportedly to ‘protect shipping’ in the Gulf, is a non-starter.”
Let’s also, individually, as most nations already have – except Britain and Israel (and Australia is ‘umming and ahhing’ about it) give a thumbs down to the US plan.
UN Security Council, it’s over to you now. Better act quickly before a global disaster takes place.
