Zepp-LaRouche Speaks to TASS About Peace
June 20, 2023, 2022 (EIRNS)—“It is more urgent than ever to put a new international security architecture on the agenda, which takes care of the security interest of every single country on the planet,” Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche is quoted as saying in an interview that Russian press agency TASS published on June 19.
Zepp-LaRouche pointed to the peace initiatives of China, Brazil, African nations, and Pope Francis as indicating the enormous fights over the direction the world will take. Even in the U.S., media outlets are acknowledging, belatedly, that “neither the unprecedented sanctions against Russia nor the military operation in Ukraine led to the desired results,” said the Schiller Institute founder.
“Despite 12 rounds of sanctions, the Russian economy is doing relatively well, while the West, and Germany in particular, is not, and none of the enormous amounts of weapon deliveries to Ukraine has been a game changer so far.”
Zepp-LaRouche declared that “the momentum on the side of the BRICS-Plus and the Global South to build an alternative system is faster than expected by those in the West who want to still maintain a unipolar world....
“If certain countries would now try to force the issue by sending long-range missiles to Ukraine, which could reach crucial military targets deep inside Russia, we could rapidly reach the point of no return,” she said.
Of the “many proposals for a negotiated peace on the table,” she stressed that, “It is more urgent than ever to put a new international security architecture on the agenda, which takes care of the security interest of every single country on the planet.”
