Support for terrorism in the world, in particular, separatism in Donbas from other countries, calls into question international rules. This was stated by British Prime Minister Teresa May during her speech at the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly.

"...when countries back groups like Hezbollah to increase instability and conflict across the Middle East, support so-called separatists in Ukraine to create instability on Europe’s eastern borders, or give tacit support to criminal groups launching cyber-attacks against our countries and institutions, they call into question the very rules and international systems that protect us. And that is why, both globally, but also in our own continent of Europe, the UK will remain steadfast in our commitment and responsibility to ensure the security and stability of our friends and allies as we have done for generations.

May stressed that the United Kingdom will be resolutely responsible for ensuring the safety of "friends and allies".

"We all have to decide and act on the level of responsibility to each other. I'm talking about the role of the UN in the fight against terrorism. This is the work where we are members of a critical responsibility where the UN itself cannot cope. Terrorism, conflicts and instability, which we see all over the world, is in many ways determined by the actions of individual countries through intermediaries. In particular, supporting the so-called separatists in Ukraine, in order to destabilize the eastern borders, all this calls into question the international home rule ", - she said.

As it was reported earlier the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly opened in New York on Tuesday, September 19. 2017. 

More than 120 heads of states and governments, as well as foreign ministers and heads of delegations, are going to give speeches during it.
