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.
“I think our focus now will be on continuing to work with countries in the region, allies and partners of the United States who join us in wanting to send a strong message to the Assad regime and to tighten the noose economically and politically,” US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told a regular briefing on Thursday.
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.”
