Russia trying to recover past glory 'through force', says Obama

Publish Time 2016-09-21 10:47:00


US President Barack Obama accused Russia of trying to recover power through force, amid Moscow's military involvement in Syria and Ukraine.

“In a world that left the age of empire behind, we see Russia attempting to recover lost glory through force,” Obama said in his final address to the United Nations General Assembly.

Obama insisted diplomacy is the only way to end the brutal five-year conflict in Syria, as a ceasefire brokered by Washington and Moscow lay in tatters, Dawn reports.
