On Feb 4th, the Human Rights Watch said, “Veto by Russia and China of the UN Security Council resolution on Syria, are a betrayal of the Syrian people.” Furthermore, the human Right watch reports that "death toll had more than doubled, since Russia and China veto a previous Syria resolution on October 4; according to United Nations figures. Human Rights Watch warned the government of Bashar Al-Assad; blamed for the majority of the killings; against interpreting this double veto as a green light, for even more violence."

Mr Louay Sakka, SEO, board member said: “The double veto by Russia and china is a shameful act, with disastrous consequences. Russia and China have effectively granted the Syrian regime a diplomatic cover to continue killing unarmed Syrians with impunity. SEO fears the Syrian regime will commit more massacres against Syrian people. SEO and The Syrain people hold, Russia and China, accountable for the continued atrocities by the Assad Regime."

The Syrian Expatriates Organization asks, the international community, to adopt all necessary measures to protect Syrian people and to assist them in establish the basic freedom and human rights they seek.
