Russia: British-Drafted UNSC Statement on al-Quseir Untimely
Russia: British-Drafted UNSC Statement on al-Quseir Untimely
Russian Foreign Ministry's Spokesperson, Alexander Lukashevich, said on Monday that the British initiative to issue a UN Security Council statement on the Syrian city of al-Quseir "can hardly be called timely and it is impossible for Russia to accept such move."

Lukashevich pointed out that the city of al-Quseir has been under the control of the armed groups and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists since last February, and the Syrian army is completing a counterterrorist operation against these groups who terrorized the population of Quseir for months without restraint.

“In this situation, Great Britain called for issuing a statement by the U.N. Security Council. Basically, it demanded that the Syrian military cease fire unilaterally and let the bandits encircled in several city districts get out,” he said.

“Russia could not agree with this position. We stated our disagreement and the draft did not pass,” the spokesperson added.

“The proposal that the international community should raise its voice at a time when the Syrian army is finishing a counter-terrorist operation against the armed groups who have been terrorizing the population of the border-lying Syrian town for several months can hardly be called timely,” Lukashevich said.

He noted that “no one drew attention to the suffering of al-Quseir’s residents because of the practices of the armed groups," stressing Russia's firm stance which highlights the necessity of halting all forms of violence in Syria and ending the suffering of citizens, in addition to shifting to the peaceful political settlement based on Geneva Communiqué issued last June and the Russian-U.S. accord which was reached on May 7th in Moscow.
