Obama rebuked the Chinese guest for Beijing’s “wrong” position on Syria

At a meeting with Vice President Xi Jinping in the White House, U.S. President Barack Obama said that Washington was disappointed with the position of Beijing in the vote of resolution on Syria.

Russia and China, fearing a repetition of “the Libyan scenario” in Syria, for the second time exercised their veto right as permanent members of UN Security Council to against the resolution, saying the text does not exclude foreign interference in Syrian affairs.

Of the 15 member countries of the Council, 13 voted for the resolution blaming the government of Syria, against – two.

The decision by Moscow and Beijing opposing sanctions caused a negative reaction from the U.S. and its Western allies.
