Moscow denounces Washington for measures leading to the creation of tensions in the West Asian region and calls for a halt to the arms race in this region.
“The provocative measures of the Americans to launch an arms race in West Asia must be stopped,” said Russian Ambassador to the United Nations, Vasily Nebenzya, speaking on Tuesday at a session of the UN Security Council (UNSC) dedicated to cooperation with the Arab League, reported the news network Russiya Al-Youm.
The Russian representative recalled the Russian initiative on security in the Persian Gulf region, stressing that “this is the call for dialogue, for peace in exchange for a call for war.
The interventionist measures of Washington have intensified the crisis in Western Asia in recent years.
The presence of US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan has increased insecurity and the activities of terrorist groups in recent years.
In this same sense, Afghan and Iraqi officials have often demanded the withdrawal of US troops from their countries.
