Russia To Host Turkey, Iran In Sochi For Talks On Syria Conflict

UNSC to vote on Syria chem gas attacks probe

Russia Demands that US Respect Agreement on Antiterrorism in Syria

President Donald Trump urged the council to support the panel's continued work, saying on Twitter that this would "ensure" that President Bashar al-Assad's "regime does not commit mass murder with chemical weapons ever again".

Russian Federation and the USA have failed to resolve a dispute over extending the mandate of a UN-backed investigative team that blamed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces for a chemical weapons attack in April that killed more than 80 people.

The Trump administration has urged the global community to take a tougher stance on government of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, an ally of President Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation.

In September 2013, Syria accepted a Russian proposal to relinquish its chemical weapons stockpile and join the Chemical Weapons Convention.

The summit at Putin's official residence in Sochi will involve the three "guarantors of the process of political settlement and stability and security that we see now in Syria", Peskov said.

Russian UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the USA draft resolution was not balanced. A resolution needs nine votes in favour and no vetoes by the United States, France, Russia, Britain or China to be adopted. "The draft text Russian Federation put forward without any negotiation is unhelpful, has no support, and can not be taken seriously".


United Nations diplomats said they were expecting a Russian veto of the U.S. text during the council meeting scheduled for 3:00 pm (2000 GMT).

The mandate for the joint inquiry by the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which found the Syrian government used the banned nerve agent sarin in an April 4 attack, expires at midnight Thursday.

Nebenzia said Monday, "It is important that the JIM is renewed but on an updated mandate because the systemic errors that we saw with the recent report should be corrected, and that's the aim of our resolution".

The JIM experts also said they were "confident" the Islamic State extremist group was responsible for an attack at Um Hosh in Aleppo in September 2016 using mustard gas.

"Russia is doing everything possible to prevent that from happening", he said.

"It's absolutely crucial for the mandate to be renewed", Matthew Rycroft, the United Kingdom ambassador to the UN, told reporters Wednesday. That averted a USA military strike in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack that killed hundreds in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta.
