  • UN Security Council to Meet Friday on Syria Crisis - Russian Mission

The United Nations Security Council meets regarding the situation in Syria, April 10, 2018 in New York City.

Syria's government and Russian Federation have denied a chemical attack took place in Douma, but rescuers and medics said that dozens of people, including many women and children, were killed.

The rival resolutions that paralysed the Security Council had small differences that Russian Federation and the West hoped to score points with rather than act on Syria.

Russia has been calling for action to prevent tensions from spiraling out of control after the U.S. president and his allies threatened to strike Syria in response to the alleged use of poisonous gas in Duma, the last militant stronghold that the Russian military said was retaken by government forces this week.

Rival draft resolutions by both the USA and Russian Federation to set up a new expert body to probe chemical weapons attacks in Syria have failed to pass at the United Nations Security Council.

The United States, France and Britain defended their military action as legal during the Security Council meeting. Moscow opposes any Western strike on its close ally Assad. Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said after the vote. Addressing the council, Guterres urged all countries to uphold global law and warned that "Syria today represents the most serious threat to worldwide peace and security". "It is clear that the provocation step has nothing to do with a desire to investigate what happened". Doctors and witnesses have said victims showed symptoms of poisoning, possibly by a nerve agent, and reported the smell of chlorine gas.

"History will record that, on this day, Russian Federation chose protecting a monster over the lives of the Syrian people", Haley was quoted, as saying, while referring to Syrian President Assad. Russia vetoed a US text, while two Russian-drafted resolutions failed to get the minimum nine votes required for approval. Russia vetoed a USA text, while two Russian-drafted resolutions failed to get a minimum nine votes to pass.

U.S. President Donald Trump canceled a planned trip to Latin America later this week to focus on responding to the Syria incident, the White House said.

Trump on Monday warned of a quick, forceful response once responsibility for the attack was established.

The resolution would have initiated a year-long investigation by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to determine whether Bashar al-Assad's regime was responsible for the suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma last week that killed dozens of people and left many others in excruciating pain.
