- Russia on Saturday accused a newly- adopted UN Human Rights Council resolution "unilateral", warning that it goes "against international efforts on settling the conflict" in Syria.
"The document gives a unilateral assessment to the events in the country and accuses only the Syrian government of the violence ... It also ignores international efforts aimed at settling the crisis," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
"The adoption of the biased and inadequate resolution runs against the efforts of the international community to stabilize the situation in Syria," the statement added.
The Foreign Ministry again pressed for an immediate ceasefire to be carried out by all parties and a nationwide political dialogue without foreign interference.
"We will persistently comply with this policy," the ministry said.
The United Nations Human Rights Council on Friday adopted a resolution on Syria, condemning the Syrian government for human rights violations in the country, but short of mentioning the opposition's role in the ongoing violence.
The Russian Federation, Cuba and China voted against the resolution.
