US blocks UN Security Council declaration on Russia-Turkey agreement
The United States opposed the adoption of a general statement by the UN Security Council for the press in support of the Russian-Turkish accords on Syria, a source in the UN Security Council.
On Friday, the Russian Federation initiated a meeting of the UN Security Council at which it told partners about the agreements of Moscow and Ankara on Idlib.

“This happened because of the United States,” the source said, adding that the draft press statement expressed support for the Russian-Turkish agreement.
