Russia called Saturday for a revival of the global coalition that brought the world together to fight terrorism after September 11, 2001 but started unraveling after the US-led invasion of Iraq and what it called the subsequent domination of world affairs by a single power - a veiled reference to the United States. "The solidarity of the international community fostered on the wave of struggle against terrorism turned out to be somehow `privatized'," Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told the UN General Assembly's annual ministerial meeting. He cited the US invasion of Iraq "under the false pretext of fight on terror and nuclear arms proliferation" and questions of excessive use of force against civilians in counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan. And he said the recent crisis over Georgia's breakaway provinces of Abkhazia and South Ossetia proved again that "it is impossible or even disastrous to try to resolve the existing problems in the blindfolds of the unipolar world." "Today, it is necessary to analyze the crisis in the Caucuses from the viewpoint of its impact on the region and the international community on the whole," Lavrov said.
