MOSCOW, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday that Moscow had presented its own draft U.N. Security Council resolution on humanitarian aid access in Syria after rejecting a rival Western-Arab text.

"We have presented our own draft resolution on Syria to the U.N. Security Council," Lavrov told a news conference, adding that it laid out "our vision of the role the Security Council can play if we want to foster a solution to the problems and not antagonise one side or the other".
