Proposed UN resolution on Syria ‘unacceptable’:Russia

MOSCOW -UNS – Russia said Wednesday that a UN resolution put forward by Britain, France and the United States on a suspected chemical attack in Syria was “unacceptable”, after deflecting blame from its ally Damascus.

“The text as presented is categorically unacceptable,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said, calling the project “anti-Syrian”.

“It pre-empts the results of an investigation and just immediately designates the guilty. Damascus is portrayed as guilty.”

Zakharova denounced the proposal at the UN as an attempt at “whipping up” the political situation in Syria and said that Moscow “does not see any particular necessity to pass the resolution at the current moment”.

Resolutions that have already been taken will allow an investigation to take place, she said.

Britain, France and the United States have circulated a draft Security Council resolution demanding a swift investigation, after pointing the finger at President Bashar al-Assad’s government for the attack.
