Russia’s proposal to convene meeting of heads of state of UN Security Council permanent members with participation of heads of Germany and Iran

Statement by President of Russia Vladimir Putin | August 14, 2020

Debates around the Iranian issue within the UN Security Council are becoming increasingly strained. Tensions are running high. Iran faces groundless accusations. Resolutions are being drafted with a view to dismantling decisions that had been unanimously adopted by the Security Council.

Russia maintains its unwavering commitment to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear programme. Its approval in 2015 was a landmark political and diplomatic achievement that helped fend off the threat of an armed conflict and reinforced nuclear non-proliferation.

In 2019, Russia presented an updated version of its Collective Security Concept for the Persian Gulf Region, outlining concrete and effective paths to unravelling the tangle of concerns in this region. We strongly believe that these problems can be overcome if we treat each other’s positions with due attention and responsibility, while acting respectfully and in a collective spirit.

Like anywhere else in the world, there is no place for blackmail or dictate in this region, no matter the source. Unilateral approaches will not help bring about solutions.

It is essential that the positive experience gained earlier through intensive effort is maintained when building an inclusive security architecture in the Persian Gulf.

Accordingly, we propose convening an online meeting of the heads of state of the permanent members of the UN Security Council, with the participation of the heads of Germany and Iran, as soon as possible, in order to outline steps that can prevent confrontation or a spike in tensions within the UN Security Council. It is important to secure collective support for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 2231 that sets forth an international legal framework for the execution of the JCPOA.

During this leaders’ meeting, we propose agreeing on parameters for joint efforts to facilitate the emergence of reliable mechanisms in the Persian Gulf region for ensuring security and confidence building. This can be achieved if our countries and the regional states combine their political will and creative energy.

We call on our partners to carefully consider this proposal. Otherwise, we could see the further escalation of tension and an increased risk of conflict. This must be avoided. Russia is open to working constructively with anyone interested in taking the situation back from the dangerous brink.

This is an urgent matter. Should the leaders agree in principle to have this conversation, we propose that the foreign ministries of the seven countries agree on a meeting agenda, make the necessary arrangements and schedule a video summit.

  2. In News today the USA has seized the Cargo’s of 4 foreign tankers with Iranian Oil bound for Venezuela. So I doubt that the meeting in the UN Security Council is going to change anything, when the USA acts like a Pirate, to starve Venezuela of its oil imports(While the USA accuses the Venezuelan President(Mr Majuro of starving his people)
    If, and when, the USA starts acting like a responsible World Citizen and stops its bullying of selected countries, the World may become a better place. It is up to the USA to act in a decent manner. I doubt it will do so….

      BBC: Sweden’s Economy Is Doing Way Better Than the Rest of the EU During the COVID-19 Pandemic

      Despite media headlines to the contrary, there was little doubt that Sweden’s economy would be less damaged in the absence of COVID-19 lockdowns.

              • Propaganda works the same way in every country Leland. Don’t forget, it was Australia that “gifted” Rupert Murdoch to the World, and when he dies, The Devil won’t let him into HELL……He hates competition……

                • Well, it’s my long deceased father’s birthday today & sure enough he was playing the piano for me in my seemly daily afternoon naps after my daily noon big meal of the day!

                  Funny how folks seem to think someone is going to “hell” when in fact it’s almost ALWAYS a re-education zone usually resulting in another incarnation down here for our ongoing unfoldment.

                  49 years ago on my father’s birthday (& the day I was arrested for bag of pot @ a Who concert in Minneapolis where our MegaMall now still stands…😂) Nixon took US CORPORATION off the gold grid.
                  Perhaps T is ending it or already has?

                  “Forty-nine years ago, the United States came under attack—by the City of London. That attack culminated on August 15, 1971 in the fateful decision to take the U.S. dollar off of the gold-reserve standard and to end Franklin Roosevelt’s Bretton Woods System, a decision which Lyndon LaRouche forecast and against which he fought throughout his life.Everything that has happened to destroy our economy, and to that of many other economies around the world, derives from that gigantic first step in turning national economies over the a consortium of central and international banks, led by the City of London.

                  Reversing that, and establishing an improved New Bretton Woods monetary system, grounded in Lyndon LaRouche’s economic principles, is the indispensable first step in restoring both economic and strategic sanity to the world. The Putin proposed summit of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, namely, the US, China, Russia, the UK and France, provides a unique opportunity to move in that direction.”
