Churkin said the results of the closed meeting of the UN security Council in Aleppo


A new draft resolution at Aleppo, prepared by New Zealand, is not quite consistent with the Russian approach. This statement was made by the permanent representative of Russia to the UN Vitaly Churkin after a closed meeting of the UN security Council, where consultations were held on the new draft of the document.

Churkin called the debate on the draft conceptual document and noted that it “identified a number of inconsistencies in the points of view of members of the security Council”. “While the Outlook is unclear. Not that even take and conduct further work [on the document]. Our conceptual is its approach, which this text does not quite match”, — he said (quoted by TASS).

The Agency “RIA Novosti”, which reviewed a new draft resolution notes that the document contains requirements to “completely stop all attacks that can lead to the death of civilians and destruction of civilian infrastructure, in particular, carried out with air in Aleppo”, and also calls for the introduction of 48-hour humanitarian pause, the medical evacuation and return to the political process. Earlier, according to the Agency, Churkin said that Russia is ready to consider the proposed draft resolution on Syria and believes the initiative is interesting

Two previous draft of the document prepared by France and Russia – have failed in the UN security Council.
