Russia is against imposing sanctions on Syria
Russia is against imposing sanctions on Syria in connection with an investigation into the killing of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, the Foreign Ministry said Wednesday. "Russia will do everything necessary to prevent sanctions being imposed," the ministry's official spokesman, Mikhail Kamynin said. Kamynin said Russia wants the UN Security Council's resolution on Syria to "confirm that the investigation was fair and unbiased". Hariri was killed along with 20 other people in a Beirut explosion in February. Investigators found that the incident had been a well-planned and well-funded assassination. In October, an international investigation commission delivered a report to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and members of the Security Council suggesting that high-ranking Syrian and Lebanese officials had been involved in the crime. Syria said the report was politically motivated and untrue.
