Japan advocates reform of UNSC

Tokyo, March 14 ( /Sputnik) Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said on Monday that the situation in Ukraine and Russia’s actions point out the necessity of reforming the ted Nations Security Council and creating a new “world order.” “The rampage of Russia, which is a permanent UNSC member, points to the necessity to organise a new world order,” Kishida told a parliament committee, adding that “Together with the countries that are predisposed toward reforms, we will continue our efforts to reform the Security Council and the UN.” On February 24, Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine after the self-proclaimed Donbas republics appealed for help in defending themselves against the Ukrainian military. Russian President Vladimir Putin said the goal of the operation is to protect the people of Donbas, who have been subjected to “abuse and genocide” for the eight years since they proclaimed independence from Kiev. The Russian Defence Ministry said the operation is targeting Ukrainian military infrastructure only. Moscow has repeatedly stressed that it has no plans to occupy Ukraine. /SPUTNIK VP SY 1236
