Russia warns over new US draft on Syria

Russia believes that a new UN Security Council resolution on Syria reportedly being drafted by the United States is not balanced, the country’s deputy foreign minister said.
The “new US draft of the UNSC resolution on Syria is a slightly modified version of the last vetoed document. It should be substantially balanced,” Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov wrote on his Twitter account late Monday.
Diplomats said last week that Washington was drawing up a new draft resolution demanding humanitarian access to Syrian cities where thousands have been killed.
If put to a vote, it would be the third time Western nations have tried to get a Security Council resolution on the Syria crisis, after two previous attempts were vetoed by Russia and China.
The US said Monday it hoped Moscow would turn its attention to Syria and push for humanitarian relief there now that Russia’s presidential elections are over.
“We’re hoping for some fresh attention to the tragedy in Syria now that the elections are passed,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters.
“And our hope is that now that these elections are behind them that they will join all of us in doing more to push for humanitarian relief for the people of Homs and the people throughout Syria,” she said.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed frustration last week with Russia’s “troubling” failure to produce an aid plan for Syria, despite its influence with President Bashar al-Assad.

      How do you know that he did not do more than McCain or Obama? If you were keeping yourself posted, you should have seen that the opposition is coming from more limited, affluent and west-connected areas…

      And then figure out what you are suggesting for the Baluch people by your own logic…

    America recently and publicly anounced that it will soon RESUME arms shipments to the rebels (so-called opposition) in Syria. That means they have done it before. Now they are lambasting Russia for sending arms to the Syrian government forces, whose duty is to protect civilians and the territory of Syria against insurgents armed by America. Americans are downright crazy. Not once has America called on the rebels to lay down their (American) arms! Every killing/atrocity is blamed on the Syrian government, never on the rebels. It is very clear for everyone to see what is going on there. Russia, please continue the good path of preventing yet another country from being overrun by the hypocritical intentions of western interventonists.
