UN chief urges political resolution amid Aleppo truce
Russia’s UN ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, dodged all accusations and charged that Western nations contributed to the rise of Daesh and the escalation of the Syrian crisis.

Churkin said he found it “very strange” that Power read out a statement “as if she was Mother Teresa”.

“Please remember what country you are representing. Please remember your country’s track record and then you can start opining from the position of any moral supremacy,” he said.

As for any responsibility, Churkin said: “I think God will tell us ultimately.”
