    Ambassador Ward reminds Putin  of his statement, at the historic Security Council Summit of Heads of Government on September 7, 2000, during which he told fellow world leaders of the Security Council's actions "to safeguard politicians from the temptation to use any advantage to pursue objectives unworthy of mankind."
