The UN Security Council on Friday postponed a vote on a draft resolution calling for a 30-day truce in Syria to allow the delivery of aid and medical evacuations, Kuwait's UN mission said earlier.
International media reported that there were differences in last-minute negotiations over the text of the draft resolution proposed by Sweden and Kuwait.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday that his country had no clue that the international coalition was a "terrorist front", a target, saying it was the main problem in the eastern Ghouta.
The minister pointed out that his country is ready to agree on the text of the United Nations resolution on a humanitarian truce in the eastern Ghouta, but must provide guarantees of influential people on the militants.
"In order for this resolution to be effective, we propose a formula that will make the truce real and based on the guarantees of all those inside the eastern Ghouta," Lavrov said. "Safeguards must be supported by external parties and, above all, I settled in this suburb of Damascus. "
