THE UNITED NATIONS, June 18. /ITAR-TASS/. A humanitarian resolution on Syria may be put to the vote at the UN Security Council on June 19, Vitaly Churkin, Russia's Ambassador to the UN, told journalists on Tuesday.
Churkin said if the Western members of the UNSC agree to the Russia-proposed formula for the deliveries of humanitarian aid, the formula which envisages the opening of four border-crossing stations on Syria's borders, a final version of the text would be introduced in the course of the day. "In case of consent, we shall vote for it the day after tomorrow (June 19)," he said.
Churkin pointed out that Damascus had already agreed to open border-crossing stations within the scope of the Russia-proposed concept.
