Putin calls for summit of UN security council permanent members

Published: Updated:

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday called for a summit in 2020 of leaders of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council to “defend peace” in the face of global instability.

A summit for states that “hold special responsibility to save civilization” would “play a great role in searching for collective answers to modern challenges and threats,” Putin said during a Holocaust memorial speech in Jerusalem.
