The UN Security Council will maintain an emergency assembly Monday on the humanitarian disaster triggered in Ukraine by the Russian invasion, diplomats mentioned Friday.
After this public session, the 15 members of the council will confer behind closed doorways to debate a doable draft decision, a diplomat talking on situation of anonymity informed AFP.
This latter assembly has been proposed by Mexico and France, who’re pushing a draft that requires an finish to hostilities in Ukraine, unhindered movement of humanitarian support and safety of civilians.
But it has run into obstacles, particularly a warning from the United States that it’ll not assist such a draft until it states explicitly that Russia has induced the humanitarian disaster, one other diplomat informed AFP.
France initially needed a vote final Tuesday however it didn’t occur.
Now, diplomats say France has shifted and in mild of US criticism is now not pushing for a vote as rapidly as earlier than.
Any draft decision that criticizes Russia by title is doomed as a result of Russia has veto energy on the Security Council.
