Norway condemned Russia from the UN podium
Development Minister Anne Beathe Tvinnereim (Sp) gave Norway’s statement to the UN General Assembly on Saturday. Central was the condemnation of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
In his speech during the UN’s 78th General Assembly, Tvinnereim emphasized the UN as a cornerstone of Norwegian foreign policy, and that respect for international law is a main interest for Norway.
Part of the post was about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which Tvinnerheim says causes great concern.
– Let me explain why. Russia is our neighbor. The country is responsible for an obvious breach of the UN declaration. They have broken basic principles of international law. It has created a serious, international crisis, said Tvinnerheim.
– A permanent member of the UN Security Council is trying to deny another UN member country’s right to exist, the development minister added, before promising Norwegian support for Ukraine as long as it is needed.
