UNITED NATIONS, April 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Western countries at the UN Security Council (UNSC) did not allow Russia to secure a reaction to the Syrian militants' actions in the city of Kasab, inhabited by ethnic Armenians, as well as to the shooting on the port of Latakia by armed groups, the shooting that led to a suspension of the removal of chemical weapons from the country, an official at the RF Permanent Mission at the UN told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
"The Elements for the Presss, suggested by us about the actions of militants in Kasab and the shelling of Latakia did not find support with Western colleagues at the UNSC," the RF Mission official said.
The RF-submitted draft Elements for the Press condemn "the latest attacks by Syrian opposition groups, among them those connected with Al-Qaeda, on the city of Kasab populated by Syrian Armenians", the official said.
