UN crafts new draft resolution on Syria after talks failed

Source: Press TV

The United Nations Security Council has prepared a new draft resolution on Syria after earlier negotiations ended without agreement, diplomats say.

No details have yet been released about the new draft resolution that was crafted on Thursday.

Earlier on Thursday, discussions in UN Security Council over a revised draft resolution on how to respond to the ongoing unrest in Syria stalled despite the removal of certain clauses in an effort to gain Russian support.

Indian ambassador to the UN, Hardeep Singh Puri, said that the meeting was ''not so good''.

The revised draft had dropped calls for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to delegate power to a deputy, a plan proposed by the Arab League. It had also deleted a paragraph urging the UN member states to prevent the flow of arms into Syria.

Earlier Thursday, British and French ambassadors to the UN had expressed hope that a final version of the draft could be ready for a vote on Friday.

Russia has reportedly threatened to veto the draft if it is put to a vote on Friday.

The Syrian government says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the unrest and deadly violence, while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.

Damascus also says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country and the security forces have been given clear instructions not to harm civilians.
