Russian Ambassador in UK summoned
Russian Ambassador to UK Alexander Yakovenko (pictured) has been summoned to the Foreign Office over the situation in Syria’s Eastern Ghouta, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said while addressing the Parliament on Monday.
“I have invited the Russian Ambassador to come to the Foreign Office and give an account of his country’s plans to implement Resolution 2401. I have instructed the UK Mission at the UN to convene another meeting of the Security Council to discuss the Assad regime’s refusal to respect the will of the UN and implement the ceasefire without delay,” Johnson said.
However Russian Embassy presents the other point of view, claiming that the militants in Eastern Ghouta continue shelling Damascus. The similar information is spread by SANA news agency.
