Accepting Draft Resolution Would Legitimize US Strikes in Syria : Russian Envoy

Voting in favor of the draft resolution on Syria would have meant legitimizing the missile strikes the United States carried out against a Syrian military airfield last week, Russian Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations Vladimir Safronkov said after Wednesday's vote in the UN Security Council.


Earlier on Wednesday Russia blocked a draft resolution condemning the Syrian government for the alleged chemical attack in the country that was introduced by the UK, France and the US. The resolution asked the Syrian government to provide flight plans and logs of its military operations on the day of the incident and for the country to open its air bases to UN investigators.

"This strike [by the United States against Syria] was carried out in violation of international norms and without the security council sanction," Safronkov stated.

"Accepting the western Troika draft would have meant legitimizing this activity, which from the viewpoint of international law and common sense is something that’s completely unacceptable."
