United Nations, Oct 25 :The Security Council has failed to adopt a resolution extending the mandate of a joint United Nations-Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapon (OPCW) body to identify the perpetrators of chemical-weapons attacks in Syria due to a ‘no’ vote by permanent member Russia, the UN News Centre press statement said here.

Eleven of the Council’s 15 members voted in favour, while Russia and non-permanent member Bolivia voted against the text. Permanent member China, and non-permanent Kazakhstan abstained.
