Macron: the war in Ukraine should not be a conflict to which people remain indifferent
French President Emmanuel Macron said that some countries are in a neutral position regarding Russia’s war against Ukraine
He stated this during the general debate of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly in New York, writes Ukrinform.
He said that those who want to pursue such a policy of «non-alignment» are making a historical mistake.
«After all, this is a struggle in the name of peace, for the sake of the sovereignty of states, for the territorial integrity of everyone. Those who remain silent today become accomplices of modern imperialism and cynicism,» he noted.
The President of France also stated: «Russia is trying to ensure that the idea of double standards is established today. But the war in Ukraine should not be a conflict to which people remain indifferent.» He emphasized that everyone has a role to play in ending this war.
«This war, which was unleashed by Russia, despises the principles that are the basis of our organization, the principles of the only possible world order. After all, the only thing that can guarantee peace is respect for national sovereignty and the inviolability of borders,» Macron noted.
According to him, demarcation in the face of war in Ukraine is very simple: «Are you for the principle that whoever is strong is right? Are you in favor of respecting the sovereignty and independence of countries? Are you for impunity? There can be no world order and stable peace if the principles of respect for sovereignty and peoples are not based on it.»
