Washington: Russia and China are putting the credibility of the Security Council in doubt

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — United States on Monday accused Russia and China of “obstructing” the issuance of a presidential statement from the United Nations Security Council regarding the events of the American embassy in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, about a week ago.

She believed that the move once again puts the credibility of the Council in “doubt.”

This came in a statement distributed by the American Mission to the United Nations to journalists at the United Nations headquarters in New York.

“The fact that Russia and China have not been allowed by the United Nations Security Council to issue the most important statements confirming the sanctity of diplomatic and consular buildings, once again makes the council’s credibility questionable,” the statement said.

The statement did not refer specifically to the date the two countries blocked the issuance of the statement, but it is understood that this happened last week when protesters surrounded the American embassy in Baghdad.

He added that “the United States will not tolerate attacks on American individuals and facilities, and we will respond firmly to protect our interests, our citizens, and our allies.”

Issuing presidential or press statements from the Security Council requires the approval of all of its 15 members.

And last week, dozens of protesters, angry about the American forces bombing the “Popular Mobilization” fighters in western Iraq, stormed the outer wall of the American embassy in Baghdad, and set fire to two gates and observation towers and caravans that received the auditors, before the riot police managed to remove them from the sanctuary to the embassy vicinity.
