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".

The senior moved to 2-0, throwing 4 1/3 innings and giving up seven hits and two runs while walking four and striking out three. But MP bounced back in the bottom half of the frame with an RBI single to left by Trippe Moore to tie the contest at 2-2.

"I spoke to the President [Donald Trump] this morning and he said if the Syrian regime uses this poison gas again, the United States is locked and loaded".

"The United States of America will not allow the Assad regime to continue using chemical weapons".

Russia's UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said after the vote the meeting confirmed that the US and its allies "continue to put global politics and diplomacy in the realm of mythmaking - myths invented in London, Paris and Washington".

Russian Federation and Syria also clashed with the three Western allies over the legality of the air strikes and responsibility for the Security Council's paralysis.

"Russia's veto was the green light for the Assad regime to use these most barbaric weapons against the Syrian people, in complete violation of global law", she said.

Speaking by phone with American and British leaders, Macron asked the UN Security Council to take up "in unity" political and humanitarian initiatives, in addition to act to prevent further use of chemical arms "to ensure the protection of the civilian population and in order that this country finally finds peace".

The measure will instruct the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to report within 30 days on whether Syria has fully disclosed its chemical weapons stockpile.
