The Great Britain believes that the UN Security Council should limit the use of the veto in the consideration of important issues, Joinfo.ua informs.
The United Kingdom as a permanent member of the UN Security Council supported the idea of France’s voluntary renunciation of the use of veto in cases where there is a need for urgent actions to prevent mass crimes.
It was explained by UK’s permanent representative at the organization, Matthew Rycroft, in an interview with TASS.
“We support the principle the French initiative is based on. We can not imagine a situation when the United Kingdom would use the right of veto and block the adoption of measures in response to mass atrocities,” he said.
At the same time, the issue of realization of this idea in practice “with the support of other permanent members of the Security Council” remains “unresolved.”
“One has to pay for every veto. Some of them have harmed the reputation and position of the country that used this right,” said Rycroft.
It should be noted that this summer the Netherlands has initiated the creation of the international tribunal under the UN Security Council in the case of the Boeing-777 passenger plane. Later this idea was supported by Malaysia, Australia, Belgium, Britain and France. However, during the vote in the UN Security Council on the establishment of the tribunal to prosecute those responsible for the catastrophe, Russia vetoed, and, according to most international experts and politicians, in fact, confirmed its involvement in the collapse of the airliner.
Journalists form the Australian TV channel 9 in their video plot once again confirmed that the collapse of the Boeing-777 took place due to the blow from the Russian Buk anti-aircraft missile system.
At the same time, the Kremlin rejects all accusations. However, even Russian experts come to the conclusion that the most probable reason for the collapse of Voeing-777 in the Donbas was the firing of the 9M38M1 surface-to-air missile from the Buk-M1 anti-aircraft missile system.
Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was shot down in the skies over the Donbas captured by the pro-Russian militants on July 17, 2014. All 298 people on board died.
