Ayotte: "Day of Shame" for Russia, China

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released this statement today following Russia's and China's veto of a U.N. resolution calling for sanctions against the Assad regime:

"Today is a day of shame for Russia and China, who have-for the third time-blocked international efforts to end the Assad regime's violent campaign against the Syrian people. Russian and Chinese obstruction at the United Nations, as well as Russian arms shipments, has enabled Assad to kill thousands of innocent men, women, and children in Syria.

"President Obama has made concession after concession to Putin in a naïve hope of eliciting greater cooperation from the Kremlin. Yet, Putin continues to support Assad, occupy the country of Georgia, oppose U.S. missile defense, and oppress the Russian people. It's time for the President to abandon his failed Russian reset policy and return the United States to a position of international strength and leadership."
