September 17th, 2013 (InsideCostaRica.com) Former Costa Rican President Oscar Arias blasted the United States during a conference in Segovia, Spain over the weekend.
Arias criticized the United States for “pretending to be the world’s policeman.”
His statements come in reference to the United States’ ongoing threat of military intervention in Syria.
“We have to accept that the world must be listened to before a country uses military power, because if not credibility is lost; we are no longer speaking of credibility, but of a very large arrogance, of believing themselves superior, and that is not acceptable,” Arias said, referring to the United States.
Arias also “reminded U.S. President Barack Obama that if he intends to seek approval for military action before the United Nations Security Council, that he would be met with rejection not only from Russia and China but a large majority of countries.”
