Never UN Security Council was not even more incompetent than they are now. This was stated in Yekaterinburg, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

"The dispute Russia and the United States on the conflict in Ukraine blocked the work of the main UN agencies," - he said, speaking with a lecture in the Ural Federal University, which is an honorary doctor.

"This is a serious concern. Never before in the last decade, the Security Council has played a more important role than it is now, has never been more important than it is now, but it has never been so incompetent than they are now, "- said the politician.

According to Steinmeier, "to overcome this disability, it is necessary, first of all, the joint efforts to overcome the conflict in Ukraine." In this regard, the German foreign minister expressed hope that the peak has already passed a military confrontation. "I think the most serious escalation of military confrontation in Ukraine, we have overcome, - he said. - I hope that such an assessment in a few days or weeks is confirmed. "

"The threat of a new" iron curtain "to continue, if we do not take enough effort in a situation that is emerging, - he continued. - But the split, I think we will be able to overcome, if the good will be on both sides. " "Our advantage is that we have not witnessed a new war, and the responsibility is not to condone the events leading to not only cold, but the" hot "wars" - said Steinmeier.

Germany's foreign minister is in Yekaterinburg at the invitation of the Ural Federal University. This is already his sixth visit to Yekaterinburg, and each time it has traditionally been a lecture to the students of the university.
