‘China, Russia should be kicked for UN veto’

Russia and China on Saturday blocked a UN Security Council resolution condemning Syria for its crackdown.



Paris: France`s outspoken Defence Minister
Gerard Longuet slammed China and Russia today for their veto
of a UN resolution on Syria, and said such countries deserve a
"kick in the ass".

"It is a disgrace for countries to refuse to assume their
responsibilities," Longuet told Europe 1 radio. "Frankly,
there are some political cultures that deserve a kick in the
ass."

"Everyone must face up to their responsibilities. We must
wake up those who accept conformity, and conformity that
closes its eyes about a bloody dictator is unacceptable," he
said.

Russia and China on Saturday blocked a UN Security
Council resolution condemning Syria for its crackdown on
protests, drawing condemnation from other global powers and
the Syrian opposition.

French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said yesterday that
Europe will strengthen sanctions imposed on Damascus in a bid
to boost pressure on the regime and called the dual veto a
"moral stain" on the United Nations.
