UNITED NATIONS, February 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said UN Security Council members have agreed the text of the resolution on Syria after four-hour consultations which however did not mean its imminent approval.
“We have the text which we shall send to our capital cities and will wait for the result,” Churkin told reporters on Thursday.
He added the final agreement of the resolution text “does not predetermine its fate in any way.”
Russia earlier demanded to explicitly reject the possibility of any Libya-type foreign interference in Syria.
Togo's U.N. envoy Kodjo Menan, president of the Security Council this month, earlier said the co-authors of the Moroccan draft amended the text as many Security Council members objected the recommendation of the League of Arab States for Syria’s President Bashar Al-Assad to step down.
Menan said if the Council urged the change of power in Syria while Damascus would ignore the call, the Council actions would be counterproductive.
