UN, July 26. /TASS/. The UN Security Council on Tuesday failed to agree on a press statement condemning the shelling of the Russian Embassy in Damascus due to the failure of several countries to work with Moscow’s proposed text. About this informed the press-Secretary of the permanent mission of the Russian Federation at the world organization Fedor Strzygowski.
According to him, the Russian delegation proposed a short text was based on “the standard wording for counter-terrorism and of the inviolability of diplomatic missions”. “I regret to have to state that some members of the Security Council again refused to consider the Russian version of the project under the false pretext of lack of evidence of the terrorist nature of the attacks. All significant provisions of the draft had proposed to remove. In the circumstances, the Russian side considered it pointless further work on this document,” said Strzyzewski.
