UNITED NATIONS, October 9. /TASS/. China’s Permanent Representative to UN Liu Jieyi thinks it is regrettable that the draft resolution on Syria proposed by Russia has not been adopted by the UN Security Council.
Liu said that the document put forward by Russia "contained the call on the sides to cease military actions, open access for humanitarian aid deliveries, make more effort in the fight against terrorism." The Chinese diplomat described the Russia-initiated draft resolution as "comprehensive, all-encompassing and balanced." "China voted for the draft resolution and regrets that it was not adopted," he noted.
The Chinese envoy also said that the draft resolution proposed by France "does not reflect in full the respect for sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Syria." The document also did not take into account "constructive opinion" of other UN Security Council member countries, he continued. "China had to abstain from voting on this draft resolution," he reminded.
Earlier today, the UN Security Council has rejected a draft resolution proposed by Russia that supported the initiative to pull out militants from the Jebhat al-Nusra terrorist organization (banned in Russia) from eastern Aleppo with the aim of ceasing military actions. Russia also vetoed the draft resolution put forward by France that called for stopping airstrikes at Aleppo and imposing a no-flight zone over the city.
