[Russia Today] Russia, the voice of reason at the UNSC!
"We have heard some initials during this conference- UNITAMS, SRF, ABBA. Now we have the initials - W.T.F?!. What are we doing here? Promoting one-sided sanctions are counterproductive for in order to have a stable regime in Sudan, the international community must build trust with both parties." - the Russian Ambassador
Russian delegate initiated an offer for a two-year extension of UNITAMS' mandate, conditioned by setting feasible and realistic benchmarks. In addition, the mandate should end gradually, according to progress with set benchmarks. The offer is widely supported by UNSC members.
