Kodjo Menan : "We must act"

Russia and China vetoed a United Nations resolution Saturday calling on Syrian President Bashar Assad to step down.The other 13 members, including Togo, the U.S., France and Britain, supported the resolution. 

Speaking in his capacity as Council President, Kodjo Menan (Togo), said that he had hoped the text would send a strong message to the Syrian regime on the need to end all violence, but unfortunately, the Council had not been able to send that message.  

Deploring the state of affairs in Syria, the Togo Ambassador said the Council had once again failed to bring peace and security to the country.  

Nonetheless, it must be able to continue seeking ways and means to do so, he stressed, adding that the Syrian people should not continue to weep, suffer and bury their dead while the Council stood by watching.  “We must act,” he emphasized.
