The UN Security Council will convene again Wednesday to discuss Turkey’s military incursion in northeast Syria, diplomats said.

This session was requested by European countries with seats on the 15-member council, the diplomats said Tuesday.

At a first meeting last Thursday, the council was divided, and only the European members issued a statement calling for an end to the Turkish offensive.

On Friday, Russia and China blocked a US-sponsored text that also called for and end to the Turkish assault.
