The UN Security Council blocked the Russian resolution to extend the UN-OPCW mission in Syria

The UN Security Council rejected the Russian draft resolution on the further mandate of the UN-OPCW mission in Syria. Recall that the mandate of the UN-OPCW mission to investigate the use of chemical weapons in Khan-Sheikhoun and Umm Hohe ends in the near future. The Russian delegation noted that it was ready to support the extension of the mandate if the mission acts openly and conduct an investigation independently and impartially.

The Russian version of the resolution from among the permanent members of the UN Security Council was supported by China (besides Russia itself). From among the temporary - Kazakhstan and Bolivia. The United States, France, Britain, Sweden, Ukraine, Italy and Uruguay voted against the Russian draft resolution. Egypt, Japan, Senegal and Egypt decided to abstain.

Thus, the Russian proposal for the work of the special UN-OPCW mission in Syria is rejected due to the fact that it did not receive the proper number of votes. The situation on this mission actually came down to a stalemate, since a few hours earlier Russia and Bolivia had voted against the American draft resolution.

RIA News quotes the American representative in the UN Security Council Nikki Haley:
Russia killed the UN-OPCW mission with its vote.

Now Russia says the same thing to the Americans:
The United States put a bold cross on the UN-OPCW missions.

      Since the end of the 60s, the UN has not decided anything. In addition to employment of the swollen apparatus of squamousers at the expense of taxpayers from all over the world.

      Unfortunately, when Stalin supported the UN project, he did not foresee the weakening of the USSR / Russia. Now Russia has lost allies. Now the UN and other "international organizations" have become the dictates of world business. Russia is also under full control. It can only "let off steam" on non-essential issues such as the OPCW.

        At least - he assumed, once he secured a veto and a permanent place in the Security Council. But what he really didn’t expect was that his descendants would not appreciate his work.
        There is no need to go under the dictates, and then nothing will have to be found.

    The UN should not be reformed, but disbanded, and a new international organization of this kind should be permanently deployed in Libya and Iraq! !! sad

    The expansion of the UN Security Council badly affected the quality of its work ... in my opinion, this organization is slowly but surely losing its significance in the world.

    The fate of the UN threatens to repeat the fate of the previous organization.

      The UN is the only platform where you can voice your position practically to the whole world.
      In addition to the United States and K there are a huge number of representatives of other states. They listen and draw conclusions. There are no fools - everyone understands everything, as a result they convey to their population. In addition, official documents are archived, who voted and what they said - it’s useful for history.
      We have a veto right - so for now there is nothing to worry about - they will have to agree.

    The UN unfortunately has long been one of the tools of US policy.

    if the mission will act openly and conduct an investigation independently and impartially.

    Well, they can’t independently and impartially ... so they put a fat cross on them!

    Nikki Haley: Russia with its vote killed the UN-OPCW mission.

    This lady deserves special attention for her complete inadequacy. Even the former U.S. Treasury Secretary described her as a lunatic who has no idea about diplomacy and dishonors the United States at the UN.

    Suddenly, they see something that can cast a shadow on the most shitty country. And so the ends of the input until the next turbidity.

    Let's hope that their resolution on this issue does not work out the same way. The UN-OPCW mission is as lousy as WADA. Fulfills the pointers of the mattress toppers.
