Western powers have failed in their attempts to push through a UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution against Syria over an alleged crackdown on its opposition.

During a UNSC meeting, the US-sponsored draft was met with intense opposition by Russia and China, which maintained that they were unwilling to interfere in “internal state matters.”

Expressing discontent with the UNSC meeting in which the draft was proposed, Russia's UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said that his country maintained its earlier stance against the resolution, IRNA reported.

Brazil, India, South Africa and Lebanon also opposed the resolution, leaving the UNSC meeting soon after it began.

The Security Council meeting was held to discuss a proposed draft jointly submitted by the United States, France, and Britain to adopt as a resolution against Syria.

Hundreds of people, including security forces, have been killed since the beginning of unrests in Syria in mid-March.

The shadowy opposition accuses Syrian security forces of being behind the killings. However, the Damascus government blames armed gangs for the unprecedented violence, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has vowed to bring those behind the killings to justice, following the arrest of several members of armed terrorist groups involved in inciting the unrests. The detainees have confessed to receiving weapons and money from foreign organizations in order to kill Syrian civilians and security forces and provoke chaos in the country.
