UNITED NATIONS, United States: The UN Security Council will meet in an emergency session Saturday to vote on a Western-backed resolution denouncing the upcoming referendum in Ukraine's Crimea on switching over to Kremlin rule, diplomats said Friday.

The meeting, which is set to begin at 11:00 am (1500 GMT), was called at Washington's request. Diplomats say they expect Russia to veto the resolution.
