“Certain actions aimed at escalating tensions, of course, will not be in anyone’s interests,” Peskov said. “For sure, this issue itself hardly promotes mutual trust and the balance of interests on the European continent.”He added: “On the other hand, we do not have any concrete information.”

The statement was made after British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said the UK would consider hosting US nuclear missiles amid escalating tensions between Russia and the West.

UK GOVERNMENT: ' Philip Hammond Comments on UN Human Rights Council Resolution Saying it Will Not Achieve Ceasefire and is Fundamentally Unbalanced '

#AceWorldNews – BRITAIN (London) – Philip Hammond says UN Human Rights Council resolution will not help achieve ceasefire and is fundamentally unbalanced.

Commenting on the resolution on Gaza adopted today by the UN Human Rights Council, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:

The UK is deeply concerned by the continuing bloodshed in Gaza. It is tragic that so many innocent civilians, including women and children, have been killed and injured. The urgent priority is to stop the bloodshed, restore a ceasefire and work for a longer term solution. All our efforts will be concentrated on that objective.

Today’s UN Human Rights Council resolution will not help achieve a lasting ceasefire. It is fundamentally unbalanced and will complicate the process by introducing unnecessary new mechanisms.

The UK could not support this resolution, but recognising the strength of feeling about the loss of life and the desire by a large number of members of the Council to express that feeling in a resolution, the UK joined other EU nations in abstaining in the vote.
