Russia: U.N. plan on conflict zone risks poses legal issues, wants 2016 vote

MONTREAL (Reuters) - Russia said on Tuesday it wants a United Nations aviation agency plan on sharing information about conflict zone risks put to a wider International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) assembly vote in 2016, citing legal risks related to the proposal.

The ICAO has proposed testing a central website where states and agencies could publish public warnings about conflict zones. It comes after the downing of a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine last year.
