The closed consultations had been scheduled for 4 p.M. today. Australian Ambassador Gary Guinlan says in a Twitter message that the meeting was cancelled "following withdrawal of the request for consultations."
Council diplomats said Russia asked for the meeting and then withdrew its request. There were no other details.
