Syria Crisis: UN Security Council Agrees On Statement Backing Annan Peace Plan

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 21, 2012

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The previously divided U.N. Security Council sent a strong and united message to the Syrian government and opposition on Wednesday to immediately implement proposals by international envoy Kofi Annan to end the yearlong bloodshed.

A nonbinding statement approved by the 15 council members and read at a formal meeting spells out Annan’s proposals which include a cease-fire first by the Syrian government, a daily two-hour halt to fighting to evacuate the injured and provide humanitarian aid, and inclusive Syrian-led political talks “to address the legitimate concerns of the Syrian people.”

In a bid to win support from Russia and China, which have twice vetoed European and U.S.-backed resolutions condemning President Bashar Assad’s crackdown on protesters, France watered down the statement to eliminate possible consideration of “further measures” which could include sanctions or military action.

Scottish Independence: Cameron Warns On UN Security Council Place

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 16, 2012

David Cameron will engage in a high-risk rebuttal of Scottish independence on Thursday, when he’ll make a speech in Scotland which warns of the nation being marginalised at the UN Security Council and among NATO.

The PM will say: “We’re stronger, because together we count for more in the world, with a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council, real clout in NATO and Europe and unique influence with allies all over the world.”

In an impassioned speech in which Cameron will state:  “It matters head, heart and soul” to him, the PM will say: “Our shared home is under threat and everyone who cares about it needs to speak out.”

Number 10 was quick to clarify that there was no suggestion that a post-independence UK would lose its seat on the UN Security Council.  But Britain’s place there – considered increasingly tenuous given its relative wane as a global power – depends on its nuclear arsenal.   How those weapons might be divvied up between England and Scotland will be a major bone of contention in the years leading up to the independence referendum.  Read the rest of this entry »

Syria Uprising: Assad Forces Beat Back Damascus Rebels Ahead Of UN Security Council Resolution Vote

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 31, 2012

By Khaled Yacoub Oweis and Louis Charbonneau

AMMAN/UNITED NATIONS, Jan 31 (Reuters) – Syrian government forces reasserted control of Damascus suburbs on Tuesday after beating back rebels at the capital’s gates as diplomatic pressure mounted on President Bashar al-Assad at the United Nations.

Western and Arab diplomats pushed for a U.N. Security Council resolution which would call for Assad to step down to defuse a 10-month-old uprising against his family’s dynastic rule.

They will make the case for a resolution adopting a plan by the Arab League for Assad to quit, with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe and Britain’s William Hague presenting a united western front.

The resolution’s fate depends on whether the Arabs and their Western backers can persuade Russia not to veto it.

But a senior Russian diplomat said in Moscow the move would only set the stage for civil war, Interfax news agency reported. Read the rest of this entry »
