The U.N. Security Council will likely vote on a draft resolution to boost humanitarian aid access in war-torn Syria Friday, diplomats said, but it was unclear if Russia and China would support or veto the Western- and Arab-backed text.Western diplomats said it was unclear if Moscow and Beijing – two of the five veto-wielding powers on the 15-member council – would support or block the resolution.Russia, supported by China, has shielded Syria on the U.N. Security Council during the three-year-long civil war. They have vetoed three resolutions condemning Syria's government and threatening it with possible sanctions.
