You're reading: Obama: China, Russia not signed on for Assad’s removal
Popular
on social media

International efforts to halt the violence are deadlocked
because Russia and China, which wield vetoes in the U.N.
Security Council, have blocked tougher action against Assad.
They say the solution must come through political dialogue, an
approach most of the Syrian opposition rejects.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said Putin had shifted
his view of Assad during talks with Obama and other world
leaders at the Group of 20 summit in Los Cabos, Mexico, and that
discussions were now focused on a transition of power in Syria.

But Putin immediately seemed to contradict that notion,
telling reporters at the end of the summit: “We believe that
nobody has the right to decide for other nations who should be
brought to power, who should be removed from power.”
