UN: 'Russia is wasting our time,' blasts UN envoy Haley on veto

The US UN envoy Nikki Haley called Russia's actions 'shameful' on Friday and accused the country of «wasting time» after it vetoed Japan's draft resolution proposing a 30-day extension of UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) probe into chemical weapons attacks in Syria. The move drew heavy criticism from the US delegate Nikki Haley who said, «Russia will not agree to any mechanism that... Еще might shine a spotlight on the use of chemical weapons by its ally, the Syrian regime. It's as simple and shameful as that.» In turn, Russian UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said :"What's happening here today reminds me of bad theatre production. Russia is being accused of having shut down the JIM. Those who claim that appear to have short memory.” It is the 11th Russian veto on Syria since the outbreak of the conflict in 2011. Bolivia also voted against the inquiry, while China abstained.
