MOSCOW, May 15 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow has called on countries having influence on authors of a UN Security Council draft resolution on Syria to bring to reason supporters of this initiative, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
“We are seriously concerned over the situation arising in the UN General Assembly around the Syrian issue,” the ministry said. “Despite our repeated warnings and well-founded objections of a large number of states, some countries are bringing a UN SC draft resolution on Syria to the voting already on May 15.”
“We call on those states that have influence on authors of this notorious document to bring to reason supporters of this initiative,” the ministry said. “Instead of this all sides should support the Russian-U.S. agreement and join the process of fulfilling it.”
“This is the only possible way to cease violence and bloodshed in Syria, stop deterioration of the humanitarian situation and ensure political settlement in this long-suffering Arab country,” the ministry said.
