Russia to Veto Another UN Resolution on Syria

Russia said on Tuesday it will veto a UN resolution to refer the Syrian conflict to the International Criminal Court (ICC) if it comes to a vote in the Security Council, The Guardian reports.

Moscow's position was announced by Gennady Gatilov, the deputy foreign minister, and is consistent with previous moves to protect Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad from international censure in more than three years of the civil war in his country.
