(ANSA) – NEW YORK, JULY 12 – The United Nations Security Council today adopted a resolution that provides for a six-month extension of the cross-border aid mechanism for Syria, until January 10, a period imposed by Russia while all partners had asked for a year.
The resolution was adopted with 12 votes out of 15, with the favorable vote of Russia, China and the ten non-permanent members of the Security Council. The United States, the United Kingdom and France abstained to underline their disagreement with a duration which they consider insufficient to properly plan aid delivery. (HANDLE).
