The UK, which drafted the resolution alongside the US and other Western countries, bolstered, including the UNSC experts’ findings, however, China and Russia opposed it.
On Tuesday afternoon, The improved British draft ballot was disposed of all references to the Houthis and Iran, yet Russia and China said their demands were not completely sufficed and abstained.
