Ankara stands for the abolition of the right of “veto” in the UN Security Council system. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu stated this, as Anadolu agency reports.
The minister stressed that the majority of UN member states agree with the idea of reforming the world organization.
According to him, the call of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to reform the UN is supported by an increasing number of world leaders, and this was proved by the current session of the UN General Assembly.
More and more politicians say that “The world is more than five permanent members of the UN Security Council,” Cavusoglu stressed. The replacement of the right of “veto”, in his opinion, may be the adoption of decisions by a “majority of votes”. The main thing in this matter is to ensure maximum coverage and fairness, the head of diplomacy said.
According to Cavusoglu, the partial mobilization announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin does not bring the end of the conflict in Ukraine closer. He stressed that Ankara is in favor of negotiations.
The Turkish Foreign Minister commented on the topic of deliveries from the United States and the modernization of the F-16 fighters in service with the Turkish Air Force.
“Ankara cannot agree to an agreement on the supply of F-16 aircraft from the United States, which would limit the actions of our country. Instructions on how exactly we will use these aircraft are unacceptable,” the minister stressed.
He pointed out that the US presidential administration supports the initiative to supply military aircraft to Turkey.
