In the sentence given below

U.S. objections draw in part from its eagerness to export liquefied natural gas to Europe, besides thwarting Moscow’s ambition to dominate the region’s energy market.

I don't understand the meaning of the word draw used. In this sentence the word draw is used intransitively but I think it must be used transitively because as a transitive verb it (draw) does not carry any meaning.
