Reuters

Russia and China vetoed a UN Security Council resolution on an immediate seven-day ceasefire in the Syrian city of Aleppo. The Russian Foreign Minister described the draft resolution as counterproductive to a practical outcome, Russia Today informs.

Venezuela also voted against the resolution while Angola abstained. The remaining 11 members of the UNSC, voted in favor of the document. The draft resolution, submitted by Egypt, Spain and New Zealand, proposed an initial ceasefire period of seven days, to allow for the delivery of humanitarian cargo and to pave the way for the resumption of settlement talks.

"US Secretary of State, Mr. Kerry is working with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Mr. Lavrov to reach a tangible outcome. But when they are close to an agreement, someone topples it," Churkin said.

Churkin said that Russia-US negotiations are the only way to bring peace to Aleppo.
