MOSCOW - Russia said on Monday that a draft UN Security Council resolution on Sudan and South Sudan does not amount to a threat of sanctions if the two countries fail to comply with demands to stop hostilities.

"There are no sanctions there," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told journalists at a joint news conference with visiting Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Ahmed Karti. "There is not even a threat of sanctions."

But Lavrov said the draft resolution mentioned the possibility of further steps, including "economic measures", under Article 41 of the UN Charter if the situation did not improve.
