Moscow | Friday, Oct 12 2018 IST
In an event organised to receive credentials from new ambassadors, Russian President Vladimir Putin underlined Moscow's commitment to the principle of non-interference in the domestic affairs of other countries, while strongly rejecting the use of "diktat by force" on the international arena.

"Russia is committed to a peace-loving policy and is consistently conducting a responsible foreign policy course," Putin said on Thursday, while emphasising that as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, Russia advocates basic principles enshrined in the organization's Charter, namely sovereignty, equality of states and non-interference in their domestic affairs, a report in the TASS said.

"We strongly reject the use of politically motivated protectionist measures and diktat by force in disregard of international norms and international law," the Russian president said.

Mr Putin further said that the country's core national interest of "ensuring the most favorable conditions of a dynamic development, solving large-scale social and economic tasks and improving Russians' living standards", was the prime reason behind Moscow's active participation in global affairs and its openness to partnership and mutually beneficial relations with all countries and regions.

The Russian leader said, "Our citizens want to live in peace and see Russia as a strong and independent state and we seek to do our utmost to strengthen global stability and build a system of equal and indivisible security." Welcoming the new ambassadors in the Kremlin, the president noted that they have an honorary and responsible mission of working on promoting relations, contributing to boosting political dialogue as also putting efforts for the amplification of economic and humanitarian ties of their countries with Russia.

"Now more than ever, an active and productive role diplomacy is in demand, which could use the power of words, talks and compromises to make its constructive contribution to overcome current difficulties in international affairs and find answers to the new challenges and threats," the Russian president said.
