UN: Russia 'sole member' to advance Ghouta ceasefire — Russian envoy

Russian Ambassador to the UN Vasily Nebenzya argued that Russia is the «sole member» of the Security Council to undertake «concrete measures» to advance a ceasefire in Eastern Ghouta, while speaking at the UN Headquarters in New York City on Tuesday. Nebenzya said that Russia «has been proactively taking measures to normalise the [humanitarian] situation» in Syria. He went on to say that... Еще «perhaps, this is not to the liking of some, but in fact we are the sole member to undertake concrete measures to implement Resolution 2401.» The Russian envoy also stressed that «some members of the Security Council prefer to squander time on fiery speeches and letters containing some unfounded claims against our country,» which he said is done «to conceal their own unwillingness to take constructive measures in the implementation of Resolution 2401, in line with the groups they sponsor.» Nebenzya also called on the UN to provide «urgent assistance» for people fleeing Eastern Ghouta, «to step up the UN presence in the humanitarian corridors» and to deliver «immediate assistance in rebuilding the infrastructure in the liberated areas of Eastern Ghouta.»
