UNITED NATIONS, December 13. /TASS/. The United Nations Security Council has failed to agree a statement on the Saturday terrorist attack in Syria’s Homs that claimed 18 lives, a well-informed source at the United Nations headquarters told TASS on Sunday.
According to the source, the Russia-initiated text was blocked by the United States. "The American delegation offered amendments that were unacceptable for the Russian side. So, the statement was not adopted," the source said.
Both Russia’s and U.S.’ diplomatic missions refrained from comment.
On December 12, terrorist blew up a car parked near a hospital in the al-Zahra neighborhood in Homs (185 kilometers off Damascus). According to the SANA news agency, the terrorist attack claimed 18 lives. Seventy more were wounded. France Presse said the Islamic State terrorist group had claimed responsibility for the attack.
Following the terrorist attack, Syria’s foreign ministry said in a message to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the Security Council that Syria saw the silence of the international community as an act of encouragement to terrorists and their patrons.
On Saturday, the United Nations secretary general’s office told TASS they were verifying information. No comment came on the following day either.
