Russia and China veto ceasefire in Syria
Russia and China have in a meeting of the UN Security Council vetoed a seven-day ceasefire in Aleppo in Syria.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov believes a ceasefire undermines the Russian-American efforts in Syria.

- It will be a provocative act that undermines the Russian-American efforts, Lavrov said before the vote.

Venezuela also voted against the proposal, which was put forward by Spain, Egypt and New Zealand. Angola chose not to vote.

Russia has proposed a renewable truce for 24 hours only, and the ceasefire would exclude militant groups like Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, formerly known as the Al-Nusra Front.

According to the draft of the resolution, which Russia said no to, "all parties of the conflict in Syria immediately cease all attacks in the city of Aleppo, so that acute humanitarian aid can be supervised" for a period of seven days, with the possibility of an extension.

It also advocated for bringing supplies to tens of thousands of civilians trapped in the besieged rebel-controlled areas east of the city.
