UNITED NATIONS, October 8. /TASS/. The results of voting on two draft resolutions on Syria at the UN Security Council do not mean the end of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG), Russian Permanent Representative to UN Vitaly Churkin said on Sunday commenting on concerns voiced by Angola’s envoy to UN Ismael Gaspar Martins.
"The representative of Angola has just expressed concern that the current developments may mean the end of the International Syria Support Group. We think that this is not true," Churkin said. "I want to assure you that very difficult work continues both in multilateral and bilateral formats, and we still hope that the situation in Syria will be normalized, and that it will have a very favorable effect on the state of affairs in east Aleppo. We hope that this will happen as soon as possible," the diplomat noted.
The inability of the UN Security Council to adopt a resolution on Aleppo does not mean that diplomatic efforts to settle the situation in the Syrian city will stop, he continued. "No, no, it is just the end of another very strange UN Security Council meeting. No, this is not the end of diplomacy," Churkin said.
Earlier today at the UN Security Council session, Russia has vetoed the draft resolution on establishing a no-flight zone over Aleppo. The alternative draft document proposed by Russia did not secure nine votes necessary for its adoption.
