Russia urged the UN Security Council to adopt a resolution in favour of its memorandum on establishing four de-escalation zones within Syrian territory.

A source at the Russian mission to the United Nations confirmed that the draft of the resolution has already been submitted to the UN Security Council.

The resolution itself calls on the UN to formally accept the Russian memorandum on creating 4 de-escalation zones within Syrian territory, with the purpose of protecting civilian population.

Memorandum on establishing the so-called “safe zones” was created during the fourth round of negotiations on settlement of the Syrian crisis which took place between May 3rd and 4th in Kazakh capital city of Astana. Apart from Russia, Iran and Turkey also act as the guarantor states.
