Russia accuses US of double standards over Syria
Russian accused the United States of applying double standards over Syria on Friday and blamed Washington for blocking a UN Security Council statement condemning a car bomb attack in Damascus, which killed 53 people on Thursday on a busy highway, damaging nearby Russian embassy buildings in the Syrian capital.


"We are disappointed that, as a result of the United States' position at the United Nations Security Council, the terrorist act in Syria was not condemned," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told a joint news conference after talks with China's foreign minister. (AFP)
