The President of Bolivia has called America a threat to the United Nations because of anti-Russian sanctions
The President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, said that the United States are a threat to the UN because of the acceptance by Congress of the bill on new sanctions against Russia. The head of state wrote in his Twitter.
“The US is again planning to introduce against Russia contrary to international law unilateral sanctions. Bolivia rejects it. Similar U.S. sanctions show that they are a threat to the multilateral world, international law and the UN,” explained Morales.
Con este tipo de sanciones, se ratifica EEUU como una amenaza al multilateralismo, al derecho internacional y a las NNUU.
