Russia, China speak for majority, FM spox says

The Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Tuesday that her country and China's role at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) includes voicing the opinions of the majority of the world.

Speaking to RT, Zakharova reminded that the rest of the permanent members of the UNSC – the United States, the United Kingdom, and France – also sit in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which means their views are not objective. She also warned that if Russia is stripped of its permanent membership with the UNSC, "then only the voice of Western countries will remain" in that group.

Earlier in the day, Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov slammed another organization, NATO, and claimed its sole purpose is to serve as an "instrument of confrontation and containment" of Russia.
