Sri Lanka, India abstain on UN resolution calling on Russia to make reparations to Ukraine
COLOMBO (News 1st) – Sri Lanka, India and several other countries abstained from voting on a draft resolution approved by the UN General Assembly that recognised that Russia must be responsible for making reparations to Ukraine.The draft resolution, ‘Furtherance of remedy and reparation for aggression against Ukraine’, introduced by Ukraine, was adopted on Monday (14) in the 193-member UN General Assembly by a recorded vote of 94 in favour, 14 against and 73 abstentions, including by India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brazil, Egypt, Indonesia, Israel, Nepal, Pakistan, South Africa and Sri Lanka.Those voting against the resolution were Belarus, China, Cuba, North Korea, Iran, Russia and Syria.General Assembly resolutions are non-binding, but they carry political weight.The resolution, co-sponsored by nearly 50 nations, recognised that Russia “must be held to account for any violations of international law in or against Ukraine, including its aggression in violation of the Charter of the United Nations, as well as any violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law, and that it must bear the legal consequences of all of its internationally wrongful acts, including making reparation for the injury, including any damage, caused by such acts.” In March, 141 members of the General Assembly voted to denounce Russia’s invasion, and 143 in October voted to condemn Moscow’s attempted annexation of parts of Ukraine. India had also abstained on those two votes.

ATAGI recommendations on first booster dose in adolescents aged 12-15 years
1-3 There is currently insufficient evidence that a first booster dose provides additional protection against severe disease for most children and adolescents in this age group.Adolescents aged 12-15 years who are at an increased risk of severe disease may receive a first booster dose From first principles, ATAGI have identified three groups of adolescents aged 12-15 years who may be at greater risk of severe disease from COVID-19 compared to their peers:A first booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine may offer additional protection against severe disease, noting the overall risk of admission to an intensive care unit and death in this age group remains very low.1-3 There have been no confirmed deaths from COVID-19 in Australian adolescents aged 12-15 years during the period of Omicron predominance.1,2 Most European and North American countries have also recorded no deaths except for England (1), Denmark (5), and the United States (17).3 These data reflect deaths in adolescents aged 12-15 years with concurrent SARS-CoV-2 since February 1, 2022, and do not necessarily attribute cause of death to COVID-19.Myocarditis following vaccination remains rare. Data from the United States and Israel suggest the risk of myocarditis following a third dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in male adolescents aged 12-15 years ranges from 1 in 11 000-58 000 doses.
