Russia rejected a UN Security Council draft statement tabled by Britain on the situation in Syria as “unbalanced and doesn’t mention the crimes of the opposition”.
Russian diplomatic source told ITAR TASS Thursday that Russia rejected a draft statement proposed by Britain, which calls for condemning the Syrian government, but does not refer to the crimes of the opposition.
The source pointed out that Russia described the draft statement as “unbalanced’, asserting that “amendments should be made in the draft statement as it should mention the opposition’s crimes”.
Members of the UN Security Council failed to coordinate a draft statement on the situation on Syria for the second time this month.
Earlier, Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov told the Chinese TV that his country will strongly reject any attempts to issue UN resolutions justifying foreign interference in Syria.
