BEIRUT, May 16 (Xinhua) — Russian Ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin slammed the U.S. for hampering the creation of a worldwide system based on justice, balance and diversity, local media reported Thursday.
“The United States is trying to eliminate international legitimacy, disrupt strategic security, expand the arms race and ignite financial and economic wars, sectarian and ethnic conflicts and coups in several countries around the world,” Zasypkin was quoted as saying by Elnashra, an online independent newspaper.
His remarks came during a celebration for the graduates of Russian universities in Lebanon.
The ambassador said that Russia stands in the front line facing these challenges.
“Our adversaries are making extraordinary efforts to falsify history and mislead public opinion about the Russia’s policies and actions in order to facilitate their anti-Russian actions and policies,” he said.
