USA in anger, Lavrov in Damascus2012-02-08 20:59
Russia and China have vetoed the UN Security Council's decision over Syria that is gripped by armed clashes taking lives of hundreds of people. The USA, Great Britain and France state that Moscow and Beijing are responsible for the blood of these people and Ahmed Davidoglu, Turkish FM, accuses Russia and China of igniting a new Cold War. While world powers are busy looking for "scapegoats", Sergey Lavrov goes to Damascus carrying an address of Russian president Dmitry Medvedev.
Lately Syria has faced clashes between governmental troops and insurgent forces. According to various sources, in Homs only three hundred people were killed. The insurgents assure that people fell victims to a massive artillery strike of the governmental units. Official Damascus denies that stating that civilians in Homs were murdered by pro-opposition militants. While the hostile parties were finding out who was to blame, the world's leading powers found scapegoats: Russia and China that vetoed the UN Security Council's resolution on Syria.
At a UN Security Council session held last weekend on Syria, a representative of Morocco presented a special resolution over the situation in the country for voting. It will be remembered that Russia and China used their right of veto to block the document. According to Russian diplomats, the document seems "raw" and hardly feasible.
Russian FM Sergey Lavrov was particularly harsh on the issue. "The list of demands to the government of Syria mentions pull-out of army units, as well as their barracks, from all towns and localities. What healthy minded leader of a country will surrender cities to illegal armed groups?" The conclusion Sergey Lavrov makes is this: either the UN Security council has prepared an a priori unfeasible resolution or third forces cajole the UN to take part in the civil war on one side. Lavrov repeats that "a decision is up to people of Syria".
