Russia, China Block UN Resolution on Ceasefire in Syria’s Idlib

Russia and China have co-sponsored another resolution that stipulates the ceasefire regime should not apply to operations against terrorists from organisations designated by the UN Security Council.

Two permanent states on the UN Security Council, Russia and China, blocked an initiative that was proposed by Kuwait, Germany, and Belgium calling for a halt to all hostilities in the province of Idlib.

Earlier in the day, the UN Security Council commenced a meeting in order to vote on two contradictory resolutions calling for a cessation of hostilities in Syria’s northwest: a draft resolution submitted by Russia and China, and a draft resolution presented by the so-called humanitarian troika – Germany, Belgium and Kuwait.
