Russia blocks draft resolution extending UN-OPCW mandate in Syria
Russia has blocked a United Nations Security Council resolution extending the UN-OPCW Joint Mechanism’s mandate in Syria for another year, TASS reports.
Along with Russia, the US-initiated document received a negative vote from Bolivia. Kazakhstan and China abstained.
"The draft resolution was not passed due to a negative vote by one of the permanent members," UN Security Council President and France’s Permanent Representative Francois Delattre said.
