Only UN Security Council sanctions could restrict Russian arms and munitions exports to another country, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin stated at a session of Russia’s Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, Wednesday.With the recent "attacks" on Russia for selling weapons to Syria and it's allies Putin have stated that "Only sanctions imposed by the U.N. Security Council can serve as a basis for limiting weapons supplies."
He added that no other institution or country can dictate Russia or other states where to sell its arms, as unilateral politically biased bans and restrictions do not comply with international law.
"Only sanctions imposed by the U.N. Security Council can serve as a basis for limiting weapons supplies," Putin said, according to state-run Itar-Tass news agency. "In all other cases, nobody can use any pretext to dictate to Russia on how it should trade and with whom."
Besides, Mr. Putin said, while taking a decision about whether to sell weapons to anyone, Russia always takes into consideration the situation in the entire world, while other weapon sellers, he believes, are not that scrupulous.
