Russia blocked the US resolution on Syria in the UN Security Council

Meeting of the UN Security Council

Proposed by the Russian side, the document was also not adopted. It was supported only by six countries: Russia itself, Kazakhstan, Bolivia, Ethiopia, Equatorial Guinea and China; Kuwait and Côte d’Ivoire abstained.

US representative Nikki Haley commented on the difference in the failed documents: “Our resolutions are similar, but there are important differences. The key point is that our resolution guarantees that any investigations will be truly independent. And the Russian resolution gives Russia a chance to choose investigators, and then evaluate their work, “ she said, adding that ” there is nothing independent in this .
