US outraged at Belgrade attack, seeks UN action
UNITED NATIONS Feb 21 (Reuters) - The United States is outraged by the attack on the U.S. embassy in Belgrade and will ask the U.N. Security Council to condemn it, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Zalmay Khalilzad said on Thursday.
"I'm outraged by the mob attack against the U.S. embassy in Belgrade," he told reporters ahead of a previously scheduled Security Council meeting.
"I'm going to go in to the Security Council and ask for a unanimous statement to be issued expressing the council's outrage, condemning the attack and also reminding the Serb government of its responsibility to protect diplomatic facilities."
