August 28, 2013 21:52

MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Britain on Wednesday that the UN Security Council should not consider a draft resolution in response to an alleged chemical arms attack in Syria before UN inspectors report on their findings there.

Lavrov told British Foreign Secretary William Hague, whose country has proposed a resolution that would authorize measures to protect civilians, it is necessary "to wait for the results" from the UN inspectors, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
