Third UN war meeting ends in failure

For the third time the UN Security Council has failed to make a decision over the conflict in South Ossetia. The Russian ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin said he believed the delay was partly responsible for the escalation of violence in the region.

At the UN meeting, Russia stated Georgia has to pull its forces out of South Ossetia and agree to stop the aggression. Churkin also said a ceasefire could not be an option while Georgian troops remain on South Ossetian territory.
