The UN security Council holds an emergency meeting on Syria

In new York held an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council on Syria, convened at the initiative of Russia.

Speaking at the forum, U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said that the time just talking about the atrocities of the Assad regimes ended last night. She reminded that Russia is responsible for the fact that covered crimes of the Syrian regime against its own people, in particular the use of chemical weapons. And this now will end, said the American diplomat.

While Haley said that the U.S. position on settlement of the Syrian conflict remains the same.

Earlier, late on Friday, UN Secretary-General Antonio of Gutteres made a statement in which he called on in matters of peace and security to act in accordance with the UN Charter and international law.

“I urge all member States to exercise restraint in these dangerous circumstances and avoid any action that could aggravate the situation and exacerbate the suffering of the Syrian people,” said Gutteres.

UN Secretary-General also stressed that “any use of chemical weapons is abhorrent” and brings terrible suffering.

“I have repeatedly expressed my deep disappointment that the Security Council failed to agree on a special mechanism of effective accountability for the use of chemical weapons in Syria, reminded of Gutteres. – I urge the Security Council to take responsibility and to fill this gap”.
