Russia suspends operations at consulate in Aleppo

Published: 01.15.13, 20:53 / Israel News

Russia said it had suspended operations at its consulate in Aleppo after two explosions rocked a university in Syria's second-biggest city and killed at least 52 people. "The activity of the consulate of the Russian Federation in Aleppo ... has been temporarily suspended," the Foreign Ministry said in a brief statement.


Russia has blocked three Western-backed UN Security Council resolutions aimed at putting pressure on Syrian President Bashar Assad, and says his exit must not be a precondition for a peace deal. Russia has said that, if necessary, it will evacuate its citizens from Syria. (Reuters)
