New York, SANA- The UN Security Council voted against a Russian draft resolution on aid Humanitarian delivery access to Syria through a border crossing for one-year.
The move came few hours after Russia and China vetoed a draft resolution presented by Germany and Belgium at the Security Council that exploits the humanitarian situation in Syria and violates its sovereignty. The draft resolution provides extending the mechanism of humanitarian assistance delivery for six months across borders without coordination with the Syrian government.
