This is a draft statement circulated by Russia in the Security Council on “terrorist attacks in Damascus, Syria”. Diplomats said that the US, Portugal, UK, and Germany broke silence on the first draft. So Russia circulated this revised version which the UK has again objected to.
“Security Council Press Statement
