The U.N. Security Council will likely vote on a draft resolution to boost humanitarian aid access in war-torn Syria on Friday, diplomats said, but it was unclear if Russia and China would support or veto the Western- and Arab-backed text.Russia, supported by China, has shielded Syria on the U.N. Security Council during the three-year-long civil war.Russia initially dismissed the draft resolution as an unjust bid to blame Damascus for the conflict and the aid crisis in Syria, where the United Nations say 9.3 million people need help.Western members of the Security Council have been considering a humanitarian resolution for almost a year.U.N. aid chief Valerie Amos last week urged the U.N. Security Council to act to increase humanitarian access in Syria.
