UNITED NATIONS, December 16 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia distributed in the UN Security Council on Thursday a new draft resolution on Syria which “develops several provisions of the joint Russian-Chinese draft” submitted several months ago, Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin told reporters.
“We updated the Russian-Chinese draft and proposed to the Council a new variant which takes into consideration the developments of the past months and considerably enhances the provisions of the previous draft in relation to the necessity to stop violence, protect human rights, and accelerate reforms,” Churkin said after a close-door meeting of the Security Council.
“We believe it important to send a powerful signal to the League of Arab States and call on it to continue efforts by working together with the government of Syria and implementing plans to deploy an observer mission in Syria,” Churkin said.
He expressed hope the draft resolution would be approved by the Security Council and would “truly put an end to violence and crisis in Syria and help the country embark on the path of political reforms.”
Churkin said he was “very satisfied with the very constructive reaction” of Security Council members to the new draft.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Washingon was ready to discuss the new draft but described some provisions as unacceptable.
