The People’s Republic of China became one of the co-sponsors of Russia’s draft resolution on the investigation of the terrorist attack on the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines. Dmitry Polyansky, First Deputy Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation Russia to the United Nations, announced it.
He added that a vote in the UN Security Council on the Russian draft resolution is scheduled for 10:00 p.m. (Moscow time) on March 27.
“The co-authors of the text were Chinese, other countries may appear,” he wrote on his Telegram channel.
It should be noted that the document asks the secretary general of the organization António Guterres to create a special commission that will investigate the incident on the pipelines.
According to the First Deputy Permanent Representative, the Russian side conscientiously carried out expert work on the text for a month and ruled out all contradictory points for constructive-minded partners. However, as Polyansky noted, the representatives of Western countries, who did not defiantly take part in the drafting of the resolution, had only one “argument” left: to insist that an international investigation is not necessary, since the West fully trusts the information provided by Copenhagen, Stockholm and Berlin.
Earlier, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Moscow did not expect much from Western investigations into the Nord Stream explosions. According to the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, not only does Russia not expect transparency in the pipeline sabotage investigation, but also that its results be made public.
