Churkin: Russia Will Firmly Prevent Attempts to Grant Syria’s UN Seat to Opposition


Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, said Russia will firmly prevent the attempts seeking to give Syria’s seat at the UN to the Syrian opposition.

“The UN is an international organization where seats can’t be granted to opposition groups that didn’t go through the necessary measures to be granted legitimacy, and we will firmly stand against this,” Churkin was quoted by Russia Today website as saying in a press conference on Thursday.
