Russia and China intend to closely coordinate the actions in the UN Security Council

The Russian Federation and China intend to closely coordinate actions in the UN Security Council on a number of issues, including the Syrian one, the message said posted on Wednesday on the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

For this, the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Russia and China, Sergei Lavrov and Wang Yi, spoke out during a telephone conversation on Wednesday, RIA Novosti reported.

"The sides spoke in favor of close coordination between Russia and the PRC in the UN Security Council, including on issues related to the Syrian settlement," the Foreign Ministry said.

Earlier, Russia and China several times used their veto by blocking UN Security Council resolutions on Syria, which were proposed by Western countries and provided for the imposition of sanctions against Syria.

In addition, in March, China abstained from voting in the UN Security Council on a resolution condemning the referendum in the Crimea. Russia as a permanent member of the Security Council then exercised the right of veto and blocked the adoption of a decision.
