Clinton: UN Security Council Failed Syria

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday that the UN Security Council failed its duty by not passing a resolution on Syria, adding that Russia and China would have to explain their vetoes to the Syrian people.

“We believe the Security Council abrogated its responsibility yesterday,” Clinton told reporters in the Dominican Republic. “The countries that chose to veto the resolution will have to offer their own explanations to the Syrian people, and to all others who are fighting for freedom and human rights around the world.”
