US: Syria can't hide behind Russia at UN Security Council

Russian opposition to United Nations Security Council action on the Syria conflict should not be allowed to shield the Syrian government, the U.S. State Department said on Wednesday as Britain's push for council action met Moscow's resistance.


"We do not believe the Syrian regime should be able to hide behind the fact that the Russians continue to block action on Syria at the U.N. and we will make our decision on appropriate action going forward," State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters. (Reuters)
