BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:55 A.M.) – Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya said that negotiations were prolonged “to make sure that is not used as a pretext for any military action” speaking after the UNSC meeting in New York, Saturday.
“We wanted to make sure that is not used as a pretext for any military action. Because we heard some troublesome, worrying comments on that in recent days, and including today, some of the very bellicose,” the Russian ambassador said.
“It’s not only about eastern Ghouta, because we have to attend to all Syria, and the resolution says throughout Syria,” he added, while refusing to comment on Turkey’s Afrin operation inside northwest Syria.
