(Worthy News) - Russia on Tuesday vetoed a U.S.-led resolution to establish a process for investigating the apparent chemical weapons attack in Syria, during the second consecutive day of debate on the incident at the United Nations Security Council.
"Russia will not be able to support the American draft,” Vasily Nebenzia, Russian ambassador to the U.N., said Tuesday just before the vote.
The U.S.-drafted resolution received 12 of the Security Council’s 15 votes. Russia, one of five members with veto power on the panel, was joined by Bolivia in voting against the resolution, and China abstained. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
