MOSCOW, February 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has submitted its draft resolution on Syria to the U.N. Security Council, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“This is an independent document and not amendments to the draft that Luxembourg, Australia and Jordan submitted,” the minister said.
“This is our vision what role the U.N. Security Council should play if we want to contribute to resolving issues and not ‘antagonise’ any party,” he said.
“Such attempts can show: one party will think it is discriminated while the other will believe all is permitted because the U.N. Security Council is not going to scold for,” the minister said.
“Our position is clear: we’re committed to the Geneva communique of June 30, 2012 and we insist it is implemented in full. We disagree with the attempts to take out a task and interpret it wrong as it is done with a provision on creating a transition governing body. Other tasks are ignored by our partners - to fight terrorism, to cease violence and reach local accord in order to deliver humanitarian aid,” he said.
“The Geneva communique reduces to setting up the transition governing body (this task is grossly distorted). We favour a comprehensive approach, which will respect Geneva’s consensus,” Lavrov said, adding “It’s the Geneva communique that was fully approved by the U.N. Security Council without any exception.
