OREANDA-NEWS The UN Security Council itself became a threat to peace and security because of the us actions undermining the unity of this body. This was stated on Thursday by Russia's permanent representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzia.

Earlier on Thursday, the UN Security Council did not adopt any of the two proposed draft resolutions on Venezuela. In support of the document submitted by Russia, China, Equatorial Guinea and the Republic of South Africa, in addition to itself, spoke out, 7 countries voted against and four more abstained. The text initiated by Washington was supported by nine of the 15 members of the security Council, three States - Russia, China and South Africa-were against it, and three more abstained.

"We deeply regret that the Security Council was once again involved in this political show and adventure," the Russian Ambassador said after the vote. According to him, the project presented by the American delegation "was written to change the regime under the guise of caring for people." "Washington and London again robbed an entire nation of billions of dollars and forcibly impose handouts that cause a regime change," the diplomat added.

"You burn bridges in the truest sense of the word," Nebenzia said to the opposing countries. "We heard an old song-the Russian project did not pass, and the American was vetoed, - he stated. "That's what this whole operation was for."

According to the diplomat, "it was done intentionally." "You are deliberately destroying the unity of the Council," he continued and drew attention to the fact that seven members of the Security Council, bound by bloc discipline, voted against the resolution submitted by the Russian Federation. "While the number of countries supporting Venezuela is at least 60, as shown by the recent meeting at the UN. The Council itself risks becoming a threat to peace and security," the Russian Ambassador stated.

"I'm starting to think that the dialogue has become a luxury in the Council," he confessed in turn, the permanent representative of Indonesia to the UN Dian Triansyah Jani. "We need to put differences aside, we need to be part of the solution, not part of the problem," he called.
