UNITED NATIONS, February 14, (ITAR-TASS).Adoption of a resolution on the humanitarian situation in war-torn Syria is a priority for the UN Security Council at present, but Russia also keeps high on the agenda a draft statement on fighting with terrorism, Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin told reporters Thursday.
“We expect that the humanitarian resolution will be a top priority at present but I hope we’ll include a tough message on terrorism in it,” he said. “Russia has officially presented its version of the resolution at the Security Council and it has also drafted a statement by the Council President on the problem of terrorism in Syria.”
Priority attention paid to the resolution does not mean that Russia is going to revoke the draft statement from consideration by the Security Council, he said.
Russia’s counterparts have not demonstrated an overtly acerbic stance on the text, Churkin said, adding: “They just have to admit the threat of terrorism in Syria is really ominous and something is to be done about it.
