Russia to veto British draft resolution on Srebrenica – report

NEW YORK – The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting to debate a British draft resolution on Srebrenica has been postponed until 9 p.m. CET, UN Security Council President Gerard van Bohemen said Tuesday.


Previously, China, a permanent member of the UN Security Council, proposed to postpone the vote on the resolution until all members of the UNSC reached consensus.

The UNSC meeting was scheduled to begin at 4 p.m., and was first adjourned until 5 p.m. CET.

China’s Foreign Ministry told Serbia that its position on the vote on the draft resolution was that it should be postponed until consensus is reached by all UNSC members.

China believes that the proposed document does not contribute to the reconciliation in the region, and points out that not even all nations living in BiH find it acceptable.

Russia did not table its own resolution proposal. However, citing diplomatic sources, the AFP news agency reports Russia as telling council members that it plans to use its veto to block the British one.

AFP said the meeting had been delayed after the United States and Russia had held urgent talks on the draft resolution put forward by Britain.

Russia’s Deputy UN Ambassador Petr Iliichev described the draft document as “divisive” and focused on just “part of the conflict.”

Serbian and Republika Srpska officials said the draft resolution on Srebrenica was “anti-Serbian” and completely unacceptable.


  1. At this moment, as never before, it is important to be historical honest. To sign the resolution for respect to all victims is the only solution.

  2. There you have it. Russia has once again stepped forward protecting Serbia from the wickedness of America + Albania (because they are so much alike) & Britain (the joke unto itself). This is far from settled. Plus, Kosovo will be anything but, American, German & British comercializam soon. People are too quickly coming out of the dark ages on information + whose truly who and how wealth has been acquired. The BLOWBACK is inevitable and shall be widespread eliminating certain greed mongers, character types and their bloodline unlike ever before. The US is preparing for its revolution now. Texas will kick A** and a out of control America, Reset must occur.

    Humanity shall cleanse itself of its cancer/greed and restore morality & family once again. Positive times are coming.

  3. Of course this is anti-Serbian, anything to do with USA/NATO/UN is 100% against Serbia. Kosovo is Serbia – Albania is America. Praise for mother Russia, USA is devil incarnate.
