UNITED NATIONS - Agreement among UN Security Council members on Syria is possible and the inclusion of some of Russia's ideas in a European-Arab draft resolution is a positive sign, Russia's UN ambassador said on Tuesday.
"We found some of the elements of our text in it, and this gives rise for hope," Russian envoy Vitaly Churkin said. He was referring to an earlier Russian draft resolution on Syria that had been rejected by Western powers and the Arab League as too weak.
"We hope that the council will come to consensus on the Syrian issue, as is not only possible but also necessary."
