Russia vetoes UN resolution to condemn Syria chemical attack
On Wednesday Russia has verboten a U.N. resolution which would have condemned the reported use of chemical weapons in Syria and commanded a speedy investigation that triggers the clashes between Moscow and the measure’s Western backers.
Vladimir Safronkov, the Russia’s U.N. Ambassador said that council before the vote was unnecessary for that resolution and the draft that has been put forward by the Western powers pre-judged that the attack that was made on April 4 is fully responsible by Syrian government.
As Russia has already criticized previous investigations that was carried out by OPCW and United Nations who blamed Syrian government for the three chemical attacks without visiting the sites. Wednesday, Safronkov repeated that the investigation is not done remotely and experts must be drawn from a wide geographical basis.
The attack that was made on Khan Sheikhoun has been expected to be closer for the agenda where the OPCW’s executive committee will be meeting today Thursday at the organization’s headquarters in The Hague, Netherlands.
Resolution’s supporters who are observing and sat around the horseshoe-shaped table in the Security Council, he said that they were afraid of an impartial investigation that Syrian government is blamed for chemical weapons attacks that have been carried out by extremists.
After the vote, Matthew Britain’s U.N. Ambassador looking at Safronkov asked that How could everyone look at the faces of many lifeless children, and yet this resolution?
Nikki Haley U.S. Ambassador at the council has told that they wanted to with Russia make in an advance of political process in Syria. Also said they wanted Russia to use their influence over the Assad regime in order to stop the madness and the cruelty they see every day on the ground.
