UNITED NATIONS, April 7. /TASS/. Bolivia has requested to convene an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss the US missile strikes on an airbase in Syria, a diplomat of a country-member of the UNSC told TASS.
"Bolivia has called for a meeting of the UN Security Council, its time is yet unknown," the diplomat said. The South American country is a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council.
On Thursday, the US military launched a total of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Shayrat Airfield in Homs governorate, Pentagon Spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis said.
The strike came in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons in the Syrian province of Idlib on April 4. The US leadership believes the alleged chemical attack had been carried out from the Shayrat Airfield.
The first reports on the strikes came half an hour after the meeting of the UN Security Council in New York was over. The meeting discussed passing a resolution on investigating the incident in Idlib.
After the meeting, Russia’s Deputy Ambassador to the UN Vladimir Safronkov told reporters that "those who invent these projects will bear the responsibility for all the possible consequences.".
