The restriction of the veto for the permanent members of the security Council will help solve the problem of Aleppo, said the UN high Commissioner for human rights Zeid RA’ad al Hussein. However, he did not specify who exactly is invited to deprive of the right.
Zeid RA’ad al Hussein
The Security Council must “without further delay” to adopt criteria for the containment of the permanent members of the UN from the use of the veto, reads the statement of the RA’ad al Hussein.
In his opinion, such a limitation will be justified only if we are talking about war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, RIA Novosti reported.
What members of the UN security Council should be deprived of the right of veto, al Hussein said. He accused the Syrian military and air-space forces of Russia in the use of prohibited weapons in Syria. The Commissioner also noted that “cannons of hell fire (mortars, hand-assembled with shrapnel) which are used by the armed opposition, is absolutely unacceptable.
According to him, the draft resolution submitted by France, will allow to handle the situation in the Arab Republic to the International criminal court. Currently, the right of veto, which allows you to block any UN resolution, has only five permanent members of the security Council: Russia, China, USA, UK and France.
On Monday, the US state Department announced the termination of cooperation with Russia on Syria, accusing Moscow of failing to observe obligations. The Russian foreign Ministry expressed deep disappointment with this decision. In its quest to overthrow President Bashar Assad that Washington is ready “to conclude a deal with the devil”, that is to go into an Alliance with “notorious terrorists,” he said on Smolensk square.
Then oil poured into the fire, a spokesman for the White house Josh Ernest. He told reporters that Moscow has “achieved nothing” in the fight against terrorism in Syria, therefore, appropriates the successes of the US-led coalition. Russia’s envoy to the UN Vitaly Churkin called that statement inappropriate.
