UN Security Council delays vote on BINUH
The U.N. Security Council postponed Wednesday’s vote on extending the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti after China, who has no diplomatic relations with the country, called for closed consultations on the proposed resolution.
Russia’s deputy U.N. ambassador, Dmitry Polyansky, said after the meeting that “everybody’s very much preoccupied, and we think that we need to do more.
” The question is “what to do in practical terms,” he said.
The United States and Mexico, which are in charge of drafting the resolution, will make some changes to the text. Diplomats said they expected to vote on a new resolution on Friday.
