ALL EFFORTS BY THE UNSC TO DRAFT ANY RESOLUTION ON SYRIA MUST BE ABANDONED


The draft resolution on Syria under discussion at the UN Security Council is reportedly being softened to take into account Russian concerns. It’s likely to have references to President Assad stepping down, and an arms embargo removed from the text. RT’s Marina Portnaya reports from New York. RT also talks to Michel Chossudovsky, Director at the Center for Research on Globalization.
