Russia insists on the United Nations elaborating a comprehensive strategy to prevent conflict instigation from without, Igor Ivanov, Minister of Foreign Affairs, said to the 56th UN General Assembly session during all-round political debates. The whole world will gain if the United Nations obtains the latest means to enhance its anti-crisis potential. As international practice shows, the latest dangers and challenges are at their worst in areas affected by instability and regional conflicts--suffice it to name Afghanistan, the Middle East and the Balkans, stressed Mr. Ivanov. Regional conflict prevention and settlement is an essential part of international anti-terror efforts, he added.
