Moscow Warns Cameron Against Seeking to ‘Destroy Syria’s Sovereignty’

Sputnik – 21.11.2015

1016231752British Prime Minister David Cameron said earlier this week he would prefer to have UN backing for UK military operations in Syria, but added he feared Russia would use its veto power to block a UN resolution.

Britain should start a dialogue with the UN Security Council on its plan to extend UK airstrikes against ISIL in Iraq to Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Saturday.

“If it [UK] wants to push its ideas through the Security Council it should… give an order to its ambassador at the United Nations to start consultations, including with Russia,” ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

She stressed that Russia had never vetoed “sensible” initiatives as long as they conformed with international laws, but warned that the UK’s operation in Syria should not seek to “destroy Syria’s sovereignty.”

UK media cited Cameron as saying in the parliament on Wednesday that the UN Security Council’s endorsement was not vital for the UK’s operation that would still be legal and would help the government protect its citizens.

  1. The UN(apart from its humanitarian efforts) is, politically, a completely undemocratic organisation that regularly over-rules the overwhelming majority of nations, by the members of the Security Council. “Democracy” is one of the most violated words in use today.
    The “Security Council” could be renamed “The Chamber of Horrors”, and it would be a more accurate name.

  2. I greatly admire President Putin. I heartily detest Cameron, Obama-Netanyahu (joined at the hip via the USrael “entangling alliance”) and the rest of their ilk.
