Diplomats said the meeting was likely to be held next week, when the Canadian-drafted resolution could be put to a vote. #United States #China #Japan #Middle East #Africa #United Kingdom #Turkey

EU lawmaker calls for investigation after Reuters report on jet fuel to Syria | Reuters

STRASBOURG/LONDON A European Union lawmaker has asked the bloc's foreign policy chief to launch an investigation after Reuters reported that Russian tankers had carried jet fuel to Syria through EU waters. The shipments to Syria bolstered military supplies to a war-torn country where Moscow is carrying out air strikes in support of the government, Reuters reported, citing sources with knowledge of the matter. EU Council Regulation 1323/2014, introduced two years ago, bans any supply of jet fuel to Syria from the EU territories, whether or not the fuel originated in the European Union.Russia's defence ministry said that, as it was not a member of the European Union, such sanctions did not apply to its air group in Syria.At least two Russian-flagged ships made deliveries via Cyprus, an intelligence source with a European Union government told Reuters #Syria #Greece #Russia #Europe #Turkey #crisis
