UN Security Council to debate Syrian unrest
Text size Aa Aa

Britain and France are putting forward a UN Security Council resolution aimed at condemning Syria’s crackdown on protesters.

A vote on the text is expected in New York later today.

The British PM said they wanted to condemn what he calls repression, and demand accountability and humanitarian access.

David Cameron said: “If anyone votes against that resolution or tries to veto it, that should be on their conscience.”

Meanwhile, Syria’s ambassador to Paris has denied reports on a French TV channel that she had resigned in protest over the crackdown on protesters.

Lamia Shakkour claims that she was not the person who spoke to the station in a telephone interview.
