MOSCOW, February 4 (Itar-Tass) —— A new scandal may break out in the U.N. Security Council for the United States if it puts resolution on Syria to vote on Saturday, February 4, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“If they want one more scandal in the Security Council for themselves, there is probably o way we can stop them,” Lavrov told Russia-1 television.
He expressed hope that the draft resolution “will not be put to vote because our amendments to it are well known”.
“I sent them yesterday both to [U.S. Secretary of State] Hillary Clinton and our representative to the United Nations so that he makes them known to our partners. The reasonable and objective nature of these amendments should raise no doubts. I hope that a partial approach will not prevail over common sense,” Lavrov said.
