Russia and China have blocked a Western-backed UN Security Council resolution on Syria, again.

FOX News Radio's Courtney Kealy reports from New York:

The UN Security Council failed to pass a resolution on Syria with an 11- 2 vote. Russia and China vetoed and Pakistan and South Africa abstained.

Vitaly Churkin representing Russia on the veto.

(Churkin) "The vote which just took place should not have taken place at all. The sponsors of the just blocked draft resolution were well aware that it simply stood no chance of being adopted."

U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice saying Russia and China prevented a credible response to the Syrian conflict.
