Russia's role in the transition to a stable world order

Presented by Dr Alexey Pavlovsky, Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the Commonwealth of Australia 

The world is in the middle of a long era of transition to a new, fair and more democratic multipolar world order. This process is accompanied by heavy fighting between those who have ruled global affairs for centuries and the rising economic and political power centres. Humankind certainly stands to lose from increasingly impulsive and aggressive behavior of some Western countries striving to retain and regain their global domination. A case in point is the dismantlement of the system of global strategic security with  two of the three fundamental documents – the ABM and the INF treaties already destroyed and the New START Treaty, the last instrument of strategic stability, hanging in the air. The justification offered for this policy is the “rules-based order”, which aims to replace the system of international law developed after WWII, with the United Nations Organisation at its centre. Russia is advocating a constructive and universally acceptable international agenda based on the values set out in the UN Charter such as the sovereign equality of states, non-interference in others’ internal affairs and a peaceful settlement of disputes. We remain open to the most serious dialogue on the fundamental principles of a stable world order.
