UK to Put Forward UN Resolution on Syria Crisis
(LONDON) -- Britain is set to propose a resolution to the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday, addressing protective measures in Syria. The drafted resolution condemns the alleged chemical attack on Aug. 21 and authorizes necessary measures to protect civilians from chemical weapons. "We have always made clear that we want the U.N. Security Council to live up to its responsibilities on Syria," a Downing Street spokesperson said. "Today we are giving its permanent members the opportunity to do that."
