Libyan leader Moamar Gaddafi has decried the 'unipolarity' of the present world in an apparent expression of opposition to Washington. Gaddafi, on Monday, said "the world has become unipolar" dredging up the term most recently used by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov who used it against the US policies abroad. Gaddafi, who made the remarks during a visit to Belarus, added that the disproportion had amounted to the dominance of "the law of force…in place of the force of law." The vantage point was acknowledged by Gaddafi's Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko who has been branded by the United States as 'Europe's last dictator'. "Any system must be based on several points to remain balanced. We have all seen what a unipolar world leads to," Lukashenko noted. Both nations have been faced with numerous restrictions by the US. "We know how difficult it is to survive sanctions that have been imposed illegally," Lukashenko concluded. HN/RA, Original source at PressTV
