“The security Council, as the name implies, deals with processes of war and peace. We immediately enter into processes which proceed, and, of course, will work to resolve the Syrian crisis, the middle East and other conflicts that may occur prior to the entry into force of our authority in January 2018. We will also deal with a conflict that is closer to our borders – Russian-Ukrainian conflict,” – said Waszczykowski.
