US, France, UK reject Russia’s UNSC draft resolution on Syria

Russia presented a draft resolution to UN Security Council on Turkey’s actions against Syria…but…U.S., France, U.K., despite the Ceasefire Agreement in Munich [1 week ago], rejected it

France, the United States and Britain have rejected the text of a Russian-drafted UN resolution aimed at putting an end to Turkey’s military actions and provocations in Syria.

French Ambassador to the UN Francois Delattre claimed Moscow’s backing of Syrian forces had led to a dangerous escalation in the war.

He added the dangerous military escalation could easily get out of hand and lead to uncharted territory.

Meanwhile, US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power said the draft would distract the world, adding Moscow should instead focus on implementing a UN resolution passed in December that endorsed an international road map for a Syria peace process.

Turkey has called for a joint ground operation in Syria, insisting it is the only way to stop the country’s five-year war.

This as the country stands accused of fuelling the war by supporting terrorist groups like Daesh and Nusra Front.

The turkish regime of Erdogan is a rogue state, which directly manages international terrorism, and who is allied with this rogue state is an accomplice, directly or indirectly, of the crimes committed by terrorist mercenary gangs of Daesh-ISIS, al-Nusra Front, … … …, which the Erdogan’s regime [and its NATO-Gulf allies] supports.

UN: No agreement reached about Russia’s draft resolution on Turkey’s measures hindering sovereignty of Syria

(New York/Moscow, SANA, 20/2/2016) ~ President of UN Security Council, Permanent Representative of Venezuela to the UN, Rafael Ramirez, said that no agreement has been reached regarding the draft resolution submitted by Russia to the Security Council members on Turkey’s measures that hinder the Syrian sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Security-Council

Ramirez, at a press conference following a UNSC meeting, pointed out that the draft resolution presented by Russian was discussed and all the states explained their stances, adding that the remarks will be received next Monday.

“From my national perspective, Venezuela is concerned over the situation on the Syrian-Turkish borders and we have received information that there are warnings related to the escalations in the crisis in Syria,” the Venezuelan Diplomat said, calling on all sides “to adhere to Munich Agreement.”

Ramirez added that his country believes that the sole solution to the crisis in Syria should be political and diplomatic, stressing the need for respecting the UN Charter, particularly respecting Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The Senior Diplomat pointed out that he will call for an emergency session for the UNSC in case Saudi Arabia and Turkey send ground forces to Syria.

Earlier, the Russian permanent mission at the UN announced on Friday that it presented a draft resolution to the members of the UN Security Council on Turkey’s actions that undermine Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

According to a statement issued by the mission, the Russian draft resolution should be discussed during a closed Security Council session later on Friday.

Earlier on Friday, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova announced on Friday that a draft resolution will include demands to end any actions that undermine the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria that are at odds with UN Security Council resolution 2254.

In a statement, Zakharova said that a UN Security Council meeting is to be called at Russia’s request on Friday to discuss Turkey’s actions in the region which are threatening Syrian sovereignty as well as the exerted efforts to launch the peace process in Syria.

The statement pointed out that Russia is worried over the crossing of the ISIS’ terrorists to the Syrian territories and creating terrorist bases there and the Turkish plans to send its troops to northern Syria.

News reports indicated that at least 500 terrorists have crossed the Syrian-Turkish borders to Aleppo northern countryside which coincided with a Turkish artillery bombardment inside Syria on Thursday.

It undercuts efforts to launch a political settlement in the Syrian Arab Republic, she added.
