Ready the Russian draft resolution, updated for the terrorist attacks in Paris and the death of A321. France, however, prepares its own version of the document. Experts believe: our project has a chance to be accepted, but out of isolation too early. The confirmed reports of the extension of the EU sanctions.
Moscow hopes that the resolution of the UN Security Council on combating terrorism to be adopted today or tomorrow, “because the events so require”, on Thursday said the Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia on counter-terrorism Oleg Syromolotov. Earlier in the same day, Russia’s envoy to the UN Vitaly Churkin said that Moscow hopes for unity in the UN security Council on the issue of coordination of efforts in the fight against terrorism, and not on competition resolutions.
“Objective reality is a long-standing policy of the U.S., France and Britain for blocking the Russian resolutions, regardless of the content”
Explain that on the eve of Russia has introduced in the security Council renewed the draft resolution on coordination of efforts to combat terrorism. Thus the project prepares and France – as instructed by President Francois Hollande immediately after the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday, November 13. We can assume that the French are not yet fully prepared the document – at least before its inclusion is still far. The Russian project is an updated version ready for the September resolution.
As explained Churkin, the document edited in light of recent events (including the Paris terrorist attacks and the death of Russian A321 at Sinai), includes agreement “about coordination with each other and work together to capture and punish those who commit terrorist attacks”. “Some of the provisions inspired by the statement that “twenty” took place in Antalya”, – said Russia’s permanent representative to the United Nations. “Greater emphasis on the fight against ISIS and the need for joint efforts”, – said Churkin. As the head of the Russian mission to the UN, the Russian project “acceptable to all”.
French permanent representative to the UN Francois Delattre, in turn, said that French diplomats will consider the Russian draft resolution, but to promote his own version of “short, strong text that focuses on the fight against the common enemy, which is GIVE a” (the Arab acronym for “Islamic state” – approx. OPINION). However, as stated Vitaly Churkin, at the moment in France “no project”.
The Russian draft resolution stipulates that anti-terrorist actions can be carried out only with the consent of the authorities of the state in whose territory the surgery will be performed. Obviously, in the case of Syria we are talking about legitimate government, and in particular of President Bashar Assad, at the request of the Russian VKS strike blows to positions of terrorists “Islamic state”.
Among Council members there was no unity regarding the Russian proposal. “Were known resistance. We decided that we should wait that we should not act in a way that could lead to a split in the Security Council. But still we believe that we need to show some perseverance in defending our positions”, – said Churkin.
Note, there is a possibility that the actions together in a coalition can join China, for the first time affected by the actions of ISIL. On Thursday the Chinese foreign Ministry issued an official statement in response to the message “the Islamic state” executed two hostages, the citizens of China and Norway. It was reported that the militants published in the magazine published photos of the bodies of dead hostages. “The Chinese government strongly condemns this brutal act and will be punished in strict accordance with the law criminals who committed this act,” reads the statement of the official representative of the foreign Ministry of China Hong Laya.
