Russia suggests independent UN report on sailors
03/30/2007
Russia's Foreign Ministry on Friday said the United Nations should conduct an independent investigation of circumstances surrounding the capture of 15 British sailors by Iran. The ministry made the call in a statement released after talks between British Ambassador Anthony Brenton and Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Yakovenko. "Taking into consideration the fact that the British side insists the service personnel were fulfilling the mandate of the UN Security Council, we consider that that the UN Secretariat should prepare an independent report regarding this particular incident," the ministry said in a statement.
