Russian initiative to probe Libya-Syria arms deliveries not supported in the UN

The Voice of Russia reported that the Russian appeal to the UN Security Council Sanctions Committee to probe alleged illegal weapons deliveries from Libya, through Turkey and Qatar, to the Syrian opposition, was not supported by the Committee.

Citing a UNHQ source, the report stated that there were doubts in the Sanctions Committee over the wisdom of such requests based solely on media reports. The Russian UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin appealed to the Committee to request Libya, Qatar and Turkey to provide more information on the arms deliveries reported by the New York Times in June.
