Russia says too early for UN resolution on Syria attack

The UN Security Council should wait for inspectors to present their report on an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria before considering a response, Interfax news agency quoted a senior Russian diplomat as saying on Wednesday.


The remark by Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir Titov signalled Russian opposition to a proposal by Britain to put a draft resolution to the Council on Wednesday authorising "necessary measures" to protect Syrian civilians. (Reuters)
