WASHINGTON, October 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Following the Russian and Chinese veto on the UN Security Council resolution on Syria the United States will work to engage partners and allies to mount pressure on President Bashar al-Assad.

Asked whether the United States is working to make Russia and China re-think, Nuland said: “In diplomacy, avenues are rarely closed… but at the moment our efforts are focused elsewhere.”
