UNITED NATIONS, September 26 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian delegation has denied reports that the Permanent Members of the UN Security Council have agreed on the core of a resolution on Syria’s chemical weapons.
“The reports saying that the Permanent Five of the UN Security Council has allegedly approved the core of the resolution on Syria do not correspond to reality,” a source in the Russian delegation said. “The Russian delegation was strongly surprised by this information.”
Reuters reported on Wednesday that the United States, Russia, France, China and Britain had agreed on the core of a U.N Security Council resolution to rid Syria of its chemical weapons.
The agreement came after a meeting among the foreign ministers of the five permanent members and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
