UNITED NATIONS ORGANISATION, February 22, (TAR-TASS) - A resolution, which has been adopted by the UN Security Council, is balanced because many Russian ideas have been taken into account, Russian permanent representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin said.
Both the Syrian government and the Syrian opposition should take on obligations to fight terrorism, he said.
The UN Security Council approved a resolution on the humanitarian operation in Syria on Saturday, February 22. Under the resolution, the Syrian authorities should open borders for the delivery of humanitarian aid. The resolution also urges the warring parties to fight terrorism. The document has been supported by 15 members of the UN Security Council, including by Russia.
“An anti-terrorist pool is one of the key elements of the resolution. It is formulated in compliance with the June 2013 G8 Declaration and urges all Syrian parties to fight terrorists and destroy them,” Churkin said.
“We stress the need that all Syrian parties should take on obligations in order to eradicate terrorism in Syria,” he said.
