Russia told the UN Security Council it will put two draft resolutions on Syria to a vote on Tuesday because it does not agree with a US text to create a new inquiry into who is to blame for chemical weapons attacks in Syria, diplomats said.
The 15-member council is due to vote on the US draft resolution later on Tuesday. Russia asked for the council to also vote on its own
draft resolution to create a new inquiry into chemical weapons attacks in Syria, diplomats said.
Russia said it would then put to a vote another resolution that would specifically support sending investigators from the global chemical weapons watchdog to the site of an alleged deadly attack last Saturday.
