Andrej Kiska: Occupation of Georgia and Ukraine is example of ruthless power politics

Occupation of Georgia and Ukraine and destabilisation in the region are just one of many examples that the respect of rules is being replaced by ruthless power politics, – President of Slovakia Andrej Kiska made the regarding statement when addressing the UN General Assembly.

“Sovereignty and territorial integrity are the DNA of stability and security – globally and regionally. But the occupation of Georgia and Ukraine and destabilisation in the region are just one of many examples that the respect of rules is being replaced by ruthless power politics”, – Andrej Kiska said.

President of Slovakia also focused on using of chemical weapons in Syria and Great Britain, in Salisbury.

“Any use of chemical weapons must be a red line to our tolerance. An automatic trigger for resolute actions. So it is shameful to see repeated use of chemical weapons against own citizens for the sake of survival of a tyranny in Syria. Or for us, Europeans, shockingly, the attacks in Salisbury in Great Britain with the perpetrators avoiding responsibility and shamelessly denying facts”, – he said.

In his speech, the President of Slovakia focused on challenges in cyber space. “I am very much concerned about malicious activities in cyber space. Growing manipulation in social media is undermining democracy worldwide and indoctrinating our populations”- he added.
