US says Russia trying to distract with draft UN resolution

Russia is “trying to distract the world” with a draft UN Security Council resolution calling for Syria’s sovereignty to be respected, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, said on Friday. Speaking after a council meeting on the Russian draft, Power said Moscow should instead focus on implementing a UN resolution agreed by the 15-member body in December that endorsed an international road map for a Syria peace process.
