Russia says presents own draft UN resolution on Syria aid

MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday that Moscow had presented its own draft UN Security Council resolution on humanitarian aid access in Syria after rejecting a rival Western-Arab text.


"We have presented our own draft resolution on Syria to the UN Security Council," Lavrov told a news conference, adding that it laid out "our vision of the role the Security Council can play if we want to foster a solution to the problems and not antagonise one side or the other." (Reuters)
