Russia and UNDOF

The UN rejected Russia’s offer to replace Austrian troops in the Syrian Golan Heights by Russian ones because Russia is a Permanent Member of the Security Council. The Disengagement Agreement and its Protocol between Syria and Israel do not allow for the participation of Permanent Members of the Security Council in UNDOF.

Meanwhile, Philippines is considering to withdraw its troops from the Golan.
