THE UNITED NATIONS, November 19. /TASS/. Russia submitted a revised draft resolution on coordination of efforts in the fight against terrorist organisations, primarily the Islamic State group (outlawed in Russia), to the UN Security Council on Wednesday, Permanent Representative at the world organisation Vitaly Churkin told TASS on Wednesday.
"It is a revised draft resolution," Churkin said noting that new provisions of the document had been inspired by the statement adopted at the G20 summit in Turkey’s Antalya on November 15-16.
Churkin said the revised document focusses on "the need to join efforts" in the struggle against the Islamic State.
"It includes both coordination and joint work to locate and bring to justice those responsible for terror acts," he said.
Along with this, Russia’s envoy said that the Russian-initiated draft resolution "clearly articulates a concept of self-defence and Article 51" of the UN Charter.
Besides, Churkin confirmed that the document still includes a provision on coordination of activities with governments of the countries where military operations are carried out.
"It has remained in the text," he said.
‘The previous draft resolution submitted by Russia in September was rejected by certain members of the Security Council that were against cooperation with Syria’s President Bashar Assad.
Russia held consultations with the French delegation after French President Francois Hollande had suggested a UN Security Council should adopt a resolution on joint efforts against the Islamic State, Churkin said adding that Paris had not submitted its draft resolution yet.
"We have tried to revise out draft so that our French co-workers’ sentiments would be taken into consideration but we thought it was unreasonable to wait for a new draft. All the more, with ours ‘on the table’," the Russian envoy said.
At the same time, Churkin said that provided France or other SC member countries "have some more ideas," Russia would consider them.
