Russia, China vetoed resolution against Syria: Governmental forces are announced to retake the control

 

The UN Security Council put the resolution on Syria to be voted. As Iranian Press TV informs UN SC permanent members China and Russia have vetoed a Western-backed draft resolution against the Syrian government, requesting a new mandate for unarmed military observers in the Arab country.

The permanent UN Security Council members on Thursday blocked the resolution which called for new sanctions against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad under Chapter VII of the UN Charter.

The vote had been postponed on Wednesday upon a request by UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan and warnings from Moscow that the resolution for sanctions “would amount to direct support” for the terrorist groups in that country.

Britain, France and Germany have criticized China and Russia for their veto of a draft UN Security Council resolution urging sanctions against the Syrian government.

Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin defended the veto, arguing that the draft resolution was "biased," and that the sponsors of the draft were already aware it would be vetoed.

He also reiterated Russia’s opposition against any foreign military invention in Syria.

As it was informed yesterday by the Western media Syrian opposition have attacked the Presidential residence in Damascus. Now Iranian source informs that Syrian security forces have recaptured a number of key areas across the country from armed anti-government rebels.

The forces retook control of most parts of the al-Midan neighborhood in Damascus following heavy clashes with armed gangs.
