Russia does not consider it normal that peace and security in Africa depend on irregular aid from other countries, Vassily Nebenzia, the country’s permanent representative to the UN, said on Thursday.
Speaking at a meeting of the UN Security Council on the financing of African Union peace support operations, the diplomat said that “Russia supports the position of African countries that effective measures are needed to improve predictability, reliability and flexibility in this area.”
“We believe that it is not normal for peace and security in Africa to depend on irregular aid from States and associations”, he added.
