Following Russia's stance that it will veto a UNSC resolution to transfer power from the current Assad regime to his deputy, the Syrian Expatriates Organization urges U.S. President Obama to take action and use his political capital for Russia's agreement of the UNSC Resolution. The Syrian Expatriates Organization and the majority of Syrian Americans are concerned with this catastrophic decision which will result with the whole region in a full scale civil and sectarian war.

The Syrian Expatriates Organization reports "It is extremely urgent that President Obama, in the spirit of using good diplomacy, and with his support of the Syrian people for their liberty, presses President Medvedev and Prime Minister Putin for an immediate implementation of the Moroccan proposal in front of the UNSC, to allow the transfer of power to the deputy of Assad's government."

"It is crucial that President Obama focuses on Russia's veto and try to pressure them otherwise. Any maneuvering less than this is a waste of time and will cost the entire region a final chance of stability and peace." SEO board member Dr. Mazen Hasan said "I urge President Obama, on behalf of the 150,000 Syrian American community to push Russia into accepting this UN resolution. Over 7100 known people have been murdered and 70,000 have been taken as political prisoners, and countless others have been innocent victims of brutality."
