UNITED NATIONS, June 20, 22:42 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia won’t support the idea of imposing a ban on arms supplies to Syria, since it sees no way to apply it to armed groups, Russian Permanent Representative at the United Nations Vitaly Churkin told journalists on Friday.
According to Churkin, Libya’s experience has proved absolute inefficiency of such bans against rebels. “There is Libya’s experience, where despite the arms supplies ban weapons were freely supplied to various armed groups and now these weapons are circulating across entire Africa,” he said. “We do not want to go this way.”
Earlier on Friday, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon advanced an initiative to impose a ban on arms supplies to Syria.
