UNITED NATIONS - Russia's UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said a European-Arab draft resolution on Syria circulated to the UN Security Council on Friday was unacceptable in parts, but Russia was ready to "engage" on it.

Churkin spoke to reporters after Morocco presented the council with the draft, aimed at supporting an Arab League plan for resolving the crisis in Syria. The United Nations says more than 5,000 people have been killed in a 10-month crackdown on anti-government protesters.

"We the Russian delegation do not see that draft as a basis on which we can agree," Churkin said. "However... that does not mean we refuse to engage with the co-sponsors of that resolution. We will continue to engage."
