Merkel hopes Russia, China reconsider Syria”s UNSC support

BERLIN:  German Chancellor Angela Merkel hoped Friday Russia and China would reconsider their backing to Syria within the UN Security Council (UNSC).
“We hope the security council can reach a unified position over the Syrian file, and that nobody in the security council closes his eyes from the Syrian regime’s crime of using chemical weapons against its people,” Merkel spokesman Steffen Seibert said in a statement.
The German government earlier confirmed it would not take part in any military action against Syria.
Merkel and Russian president Vladimir Putin discussed yesterday how to act against the use of chemical weapons in Syria, and finding a political solution for the conflict.
Russia had vetoed UNSC resolutions against Syria since the conflict began in March 2011.
