UN Security Council fails to adopt Russian resolution on Syria

UN Security Council fails to adopt Russian resolution on Syria

The United Nations Security Council rejected a Russian resolution that would condemn "aggression" by the US and its allies against Syria on Saturday.

The vote reflected the deep divisions in the UN's most powerful body, which has been paralysed in dealing with the seven-year Syrian conflict and chemical weapons use in the country.

Only Russia, China and Bolivia voted in favor of the draft resolution.

By contrast, eight countries voted against the Russian draft - the U.S., Britain, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Kuwait, Poland and Ivory Coast.

Peru, Kazakhstan, Ethiopia and Equatorial Guinea abstained.

The vote was held after the United States warned that it was ready to launch more military strikes on Syria if President Bashar al-Assad's forces carry out a new chemical weapons attack.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley countered this claims, telling the council "there is clear information demonstrating Assad's culpability".
