Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday that a draft of a new United Nations humanitarian resolution on Syria was unacceptable because it was "absolutely one-sided"."It's as if there are no witness accounts, even from the humanitarian agencies, that the militant groups are the main impediments to the humanitarian operation in Homs and in delivering humanitarian aid to the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp," he said.He added that other Syrian cities like Zahra and Al Hasakah also need to be unblocked, and that the UN needed to focus more on the spread of terrorism in the war-torn country.
