Syrian newspaper welcomes UN veto

Russia and China vetoed a UN Security Council resolution aimed at stopping Syrian crackdown on the country`s uprising.

Beirut: A Syrian state-run newspaper has welcomed the Russian and Chinese veto of a UN Security Council resolution aimed at stopping Damascus` crackdown on the country`s uprising.

The Sunday article in Tishreen daily says that authorities will continue their efforts to bring back stability to the country.

The double-veto outraged the US and European council members who feared it would embolden the regime of President Bashar Assad.

Tishreen also described the Saturday veto as an incentive for Damascus to continue with announced political reforms, which include drafting a new Constitution and new Parliamentary Elections.

The crackdown on the nearly 11-month uprising has left more than 5,400 people dead, according to the UN.
