MOSCOW (AFP) – Russia on Wednesday slammed as “unacceptable” a draft UN Security Council resolution put forward by Britain, France and the United States on an alleged chemical attack in Syria.
“In its current form this project is unacceptable for us,” deputy foreign ministry Gennady Gatilov told Interfax news agency. “We, of course, will not vote for it.”
