“BEIRUT —Russia and China on Thursday vetoed a U.S.-backed U.N. Security Council resolution threatening the Syrian government with sanctions, upending four months of diplomatic aimed at stemming a crisis that has left more than 14,000 dead.
The vote came a day after anti-government rebels bombed a meeting of top Syrian security officials, killing three senior military figures with close ties to President Bashar al-Assad, and as government shelling of neighborhoods in Damascus continued.
The vote, and the increasingly bloodshed in the Syrian capital, were a clear sign that a political resolution to the conflict in Syria remains out of reach. Western and Arab nations—deeply concerned about chemical weapons stockpiles and other factors in Syria— have pushed hard for a plan brokered by special envoy Kofi Annan, under which Assad would step aside and the government would undergo a peaceful transition.”
