Russia Does Not Agree With Western Attempts to Enforce Values on Others - Putin

Certain Western countries voice claims for exclusive global leadership, resorting to blackmail and sanctions to try to impose their values on other states, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, adding that Moscow was against such policies.

"Unfortunately, some Western countries voice claims for the exclusive global leadership. They boldly violate the norms and principles of international law and resort to blackmailing, imposing sanctions and pressure and try to impose their values and vague ideals on whole countries and peoples … We absolutely do not agree with such approaches", Putin said in an interview with the Chinese Renmin Ribao (People's Daily) newspaper, published ahead of his visit to Beijing later this week.

In the interview to the People's Daily, Putin argued that bilateral Russia-China relations were a "stabilizing factor in global affairs", adding that the two countries share views on key contemporary issues.
