“We should reform the UN as far as the context and its framework is concerned. Especially the United Security Council needs a change,” and “the UNSC is not able to fully accomplish its duties, since its led by countries who plan to gain control over oil sources.”

“In a multipolar world, countries should have a voice,” he added, according to Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
