Lavrov: Resolution by UN Security Council on Syria won’t be under Chapter 7.

The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov met with his French counterpart Laurent Fabius in the capital Moscow for talks on Syria. Of course, there is certainly a lot to discuss in terms of the turmoil, threats and the propaganda against Syria, especially between Russia and France.

However, it seems that the upcoming resolution by the UN Security Council (UNSC) on Syria won`t be under Chapter 7 and thus, the resolution of the UNSC on Syria will not allow the use of military force against the Arab country. Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov also has confirmed this situation after his meeting with the French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in Moscow.

The Russian Foreign Minister and his counterpart from France have discussed the French draft resolution on Syria in Moscow and also several other topics surrounding the Syrian conflict and the stances of certain Western and Arabic countries on Syria. The resolution for the UN Security Council (UNSC) shall pave the path for the destruction of the chemical weapons in Syria. At least, the resolution that the Security Council of the United Nations will adopt is said to be in support of the Russian proposal and four-step plan to put Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles under an international control of the United Nations (UN) and to destroy them later.

After his discussions with the French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in Moscow, Sergey Lavrov said that the resolution will not refer to the Chapter 7 of the UN Charter, which would allow the use of military force on behalf of the council. Russia’s Foreign Minister then explained the position of Moscow on the resolution for the UN Security Council (UNSC).

Sergey Lavrov said after his meeting with his counterpart from France that the resolution is only meant to “affirm the support of the UNSC” for the roadmap about the destruction of the chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria. The roadmap and plan for the complete destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons arsenals will be penned by the experts of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

According to the new statements by Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, the upcoming resolution by the UNSC (UN Security Council) will outline several measures that fall outside of the authority of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). In particular, about the security of the inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in Syria when they will conduct the inspections of the chemical weapons stockpiles in the Arab country.

The inspectors and experts of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will observe all relevant process on ground in Syria, so Sergey Lavrov in his statements after the meeting with the French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in Moscow.

However, Sergey Lavrov confirmed in his statements that the upcoming resolution of the UN Security Council (UNSC) will not include any references to the Chapter 7 of the UN Charter, which would allow the use of military force in order to restore peace.

Thus, the use of military force against Syria is not included in this resolution that should in principle just pave the path for the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons and support the four-stage plan by Russia. But in terms of France, Britain and the United States, it is often better to remain sceptical about their statements and the real intentions of these governments.

Moscow’s Foreign Minister added that the upcoming resolution of the UNSC (UN Security Council) on Syria will approve the decision by the executive council of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), but it won`t be based or refer to the Chapter 7 of the UN Charta. The document for the resolution, on which Russia has agreed on, includes “no single word about it,” according to the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
