Russia, China Block Attempt To Impose Additional UN Sanctions On Syria

Russia and China have vetoed a UN Security Council proposal against the Syrian government over its alleged use of chemical weapons.

“On Tuesday, the measure, drafted by Britain, France and the US, got the minimum nine “yes” votes.

However, Russia, China and Bolivia opposed the resolution while Kazakhstan, Ethiopia and Egypt abstained,” PressTV reported.

If the proposal is accepted, it would have banned the supply of helicopters to the Syrian government, and blacklisted eleven Syrian military commanders over allegations of gas attacks.

Earlier today in the Kyrgyz capital, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Moscow considers it unnecessary to impose any more sanctions against the Syrian government.

“It does not help, would not help the negotiation process. It would only hurt or undermine confidence during the process,” RT quoted Putin as saying.

    US and West’s hypocrisy is unparalleled in the world’s history. They wanted to impose sanctions on Syria for SAR allegedly used chemical weapons while they’ve been using depleted Uranium all over the world and their own veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan wars are dying like flies from radiation related sicknesses.
