Russia to veto Syria sanctions over chemical weapons
Vladimir Safronkov rejected the measure as "one-sided," and based on "insufficient proof".
Russia has vowed to veto a proposed UN resolution that suggest sanctions on Syria for its alleged use of chemical weapons in the six years war.
This was stated by Russian Deputy Ambassador to the UN Vladimir Safronkov while talking to newsmen after a closed-door meeting of the Security Council.
He rejected the measure as "one-sided," and based on "insufficient proof".
The resolution has been drafted by the United States, France and Britain that will be tabled for vote in the Security Council next week.
