Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov gave a speech at a high-level meeting on peacekeeping dubbed ‘Action for Peacekeeping’ on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York City on Tuesday.

“Russia supports the secretary general’s determination to improve the organization’s peacekeeping activities. Certain changes are objectively overdue, but, at the same time, basic principles of peacekeeping must certainly remain inviolable,” Lavrov said during a high-level meeting, headlined “Action for peacekeeping” and held on the sidelines of the 73rd UN General Assembly.
