Russia : Draft statement proposed by Australia and Luxembourg on Homs unbalanced

military_woman_russia_armyJuly 6, 2013 – (Ghossoun – SANA) – The draft statement proposed by Australia and Luxembourg to the UN Security Council regarding the situation in Homs is” unbalanced and based on double standards,” the Russian mission at the UN said.

Itar Tass news agency on Friday quoted the mission as saying that Russia regrets that its proposals for amending the statement have been utterly ignored.

“We regret that our specific proposals regarding the draft statement for the press proposed by Australia and Luxembourg were utterly ignored. Moreover, the text circulated is even more imbalanced. It is based on double standards and has nothing to do with humanitarian issues.” the Russian mission stressed.

The UN Security Council failed to reach a consensus on the draft statement.

Russia demanded amending the statement to become more balanced and to include a reference to Nubul and Zahra towns where inhabitants are besieged due to the perpetrations of Jabhat al-Nusra and other armed terrorist groups linked to al-Qaeda.
