GENEVA, June 30 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said a new U.N. Security Council resolution, which will include enforcement measures for the Syrian leadership, was unacceptable.
“Our partners would like us to take a decision with the Action Group on Syria on a new U.N. Security Council resolution with enforcement measures for the Syrian leadership,” Lavrov said after the Geneva conference on Saturday.
“This is unacceptable for us because the Group, which has gathered here today, is not authorized to predetermine what will be done in the U.N. Security Council,” the Russian minister stressed.
“The Security Council has its procedures. Any member-state of the U.N. Security Council has right to put forth proposals, which will be discussed on the basis of the existing rules. Based on these discussions the Security Council members will determine the fate of such proposals,” he added.
“We believe that before to talk about using Article 7 of the Charter it is necessary to do everything possible to carry out the Kofi Annan Plan within the decisions, which were earlier taken by the U.N. Security Council,” Lavrov pointed out.
