At UN, US calls for pressure on Russia to try to end Syria war

The US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, pushed the UN Security Council on Thursday to focus "all eyes and all pressure" on Russia to try and end the Syrian conflict and pressed for council action even if it faces a veto by Moscow.


"They are the ones who could stop this if they wanted to," Haley said of Russia, an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad during his country's six-year-long civil war. "We need to put pressure on Russia."
