Russia says Western powers needed more patience on Syria Resolution

Vitaly Churkin

An agreement between members of the UN Security Council to end the on-going crisis in Syria could have been struck if western powers had shown more patience….that's according to the Russian Ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin.

Both Russia and China vetoed a key Security Council Resolution which was aimed at bringing an end to the conflict in Syria.

The UN estimates the 11 months of fighting there has cost over 5000 lives.
