MOSCOW, January 31 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia will not vote for the Western draft resolution on Syria, Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Tuesday.
“It is too early to speak about U.N. Security Council voting [on Syria],” he told Itar-Tass. “The United Nations Security Council is currently holding expert consultations. There are two drafts of a ‘Syrian’ resolution, one of them is Russian. The other one, proposed by Morocco and France, is unacceptable for Russia due to a whole range of reasons.”
“Russia has repeatedly said that the Libyan scenario is unacceptable in respect of Syria, and that it would vote only for such resolution that would call for stopping violence and would not allow any sanctions against Damascus and would rule out any external interference into the Syrian settlement,” the Russian diplomat stressed. “And we are not alone in this opinion, many United Nations country share such approach.”
“As concerns the date of voting, so far – until consultations are over – it is out of question,” he added.
