UN approves Russian resolution to renew sanctions on Yemen

SANAA, Feb. 27. (YPA) – Russia has vetoed on Monday the United Kingdom-drafted resolution on Yemen during a UN Security Council vote.

The text, drafted by Britain was blocked by Russia’s veto.

The council instead unanimously adopted a Russian-written resolution that called for a simple one-year extension of the sanctions regime against Yemen and a renewal of the work of the panel of experts.
