China supports Russia’s rejected UNSC resolution


The Russian UN resolution with an appeal to stop the aggression against Syria has not accepted by the UN Security Council, since it did not receive a majority.

Voting on the document took place during a meeting of the Security Council, convened at the initiative of the Russian Federation after the US, France and Britain struck Syria last night. The document was voted in favour by Russia, China and Bolivia. Eight countries opposed, four more delegations abstained from voting.

Russia extended the draft resolution condemning “aggression against Syria by the US and its allies.” The draft resolution also requires “the US and its allies to immediately stop the aggression against Syria, as well as to refrain from further use of force in violation of the UN Charter and international law.”
