U.S. Says UN Syrian Resolution Is ‘Minimum’ Council Should Do

February 07, 2012

Jan. 30 (Bloomberg) -- A United Nations Security Council resolution calling on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to delegate his powers to a deputy is the ‘minimum’ the 15-member body should do, according to U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice.

“We think this resolution is timely. We don’t see a great deal of reason for an extended negotiation,” Rice told reporters in New York today. “There are no sanctions, no use of force or threat of the use of force as some have alleged.”
