UNITED NATIONS, December 3. /TASS/. The situation in Ukraine is included in the agenda of the UN Security Council in December, permanent representative of Chad to the UN Zene Cherif said on Tuesday.
However, he said no separate meetings on this issue were planning at the moment.
The situation in Ukraine was discussed last time on November 12 when Australia chaired the UN Security Council. During the session, Russian deputy permanent representative to the UN Alexander Pankin asked the colleagues “not to turn the Council’s session into a farce and unbridled hysteria”.
Cherif said such problems as the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, the conflicts in Mali and the Democratic Republic of Congo would be on the agenda’s references.
The UN Security Council’s agenda in December is rather intensive. Four open debates are planned to be held under Chad’s chairmanship — on Kosovo (December 4), on the work of international tribunals in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia (December 10), on the situation in Afghanistan and on terrorism problems (December 18 and December 19 respectively).
The Afghan issue has special importance. The Security Council has to adopt a resolution on a successor mission to the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan (ISAF). This year its mandate expires. The Council chairman told TASS that at the moment the text of the document had not been prepared yet because the US had not given a report on its work.
Without such report it is impossible to take a decision on extending the mission’s mandate, the diplomat said.
Cherif did not rule out that a resolution on the Palestinian-Israeli settlement would be adopted till the yearend.
