President of the European Council Donald Tusk in his speech at the 74th session of the UN General Assembly drew attention to the need to protect the weak countries of the world when they are attacked by the stronger ones, as is the case with Ukraine. The text of his speech was published by the press service of the European Council.
“To protect rule of law, you really have to accept that law should be above power, not at its beck and call. If you want to follow the principles of international solidarity, you always have to help the weaker, if they are attacked by the stronger and the ruthless. Like in the case of Ukraine, for example,” Tusk said.
Donald Tusk emphasized that UN member states have to stop flirting with dictators and authoritarian regimes.
As it was reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky held the phone talk with Donald Tusk. The sides discussed the course and the key results of the G7 Summit held in Biarritz, France on August 24-26.
The Ukrainian leaders positively estimated the position of the partakers of the summit on the impossibility of Russia’s return to G7.
Besides, Ukraine’s President thanked the interlocutor for his personal active position during the discussion of the Ukrainian issue at the summit. Particularly, for his initiative to invite Ukraine to the next G7 Summit in the U.S. in 2020.
