Brazil believes that the special international commission created under the auspices of the UN would contribute to the investigation of the terrorist attacks against the Nord Stream gas pipelines.
At the meeting of the UN Security Council, Brazil indicated that its position in favor of the creation of this commission should not be seen as a criticism of the ongoing investigations carried out by Germany, Sweden and the Denmark. The country’s position was expressed by Brazil’s permanent representative to the UN, Ronaldo Costa Filho.
“Since we consider the explosions in the Baltic Sea to be a threat to international security, a commission established by the UN Secretary General would be well placed to assist this Council in its decisions,” he said according to RIA Novosti.
The permanent representative said that by refusing to accept the resolution proposed by Russia, the countries in charge of investigating the terrorist attacks should “share their conclusions with this Council as soon as possible”.
Recall that on March 27, the UN Security Council did not adopt Russia’s resolution on the Nord Stream investigation. Then, only Russia, China and Brazil came out in favor of it. The other members of the UN Security Council abstained.
Earlier, the State Duma asked the UN to conduct an international investigation into the Nord Stream explosions. The State Duma of the Russian Federation noted that, according to the results of an investigation by American journalist Seymour Hersh, the United States was guilty of sabotage at Nord Stream. If so, they would have to take full responsibility for causing “multi-billion dollar damage” to Russia, as well as countries in the region, including Germany, France and the Netherlands.
