Russia 'cannot support' UN Syria draft resolution

The BBC reports: Russia's deputy foreign minister says his country "cannot support" a draft United Nations Security Council resolution on Syria.  According to the Interfax news agency, Gennady Gatilov said that despite changes that took some of its concerns into account, Russia could not support the text in its current form.

"This is not enough for us," he said.

The resolution, drafted by European and Arab countries, endorses an Arab League plan for Syria.
