Russia disagrees with western resolution on Syria

+

"The draft resolution of the UN Security Council on Syria submitted by the USA and the EU lacks objectivity", declared Russia’s permanent representative in the UN Vitaly Churkin (in photo above) in his interview for the Russia Today TV channel.

He said that a resolution stipulating only measures of pressure on President Bashar al-Assad may instigate radical oppositional forces in Syria to start activities against the government. The document does not mention the necessity of a dialogue between the opposition and authorities.

Russia will not accept the aims which the West is trying to achieve by way of this resolution,” Churkin said in conclusion.

Earlier a diplomatic source in New York reported that Russia has prepared its own version of a draft resolution of the UN Security Council on Syria.
