Prosor: Russia and China Veto a Badge of Shame


Israel’s UN ambassador, Ron Prosor, said on Tuesday that Russia and China’s veto in the UN Security Council on the resolution to condemn Syria is a badge of shame on the international community in general and on Russia in particular.

“The short-sightedness of the Security Council is matched only by the short-sightedness of the ophthalmologist Bashar Assad, who is slaughtering his own people day after day,” said Prosor. “Those who stand by at this critical time for the Syrian people carry on their conscience the continuation of the dictator’s regime in Damascus.”
