We haven’t reached agreement in advance with Russia and China — that remains very difficult. I don’t know if it will be possible to do so.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton insisted that Assad would still have to go, saying “it is now “incumbent on Russia and China to show Assad the writing on the wall.”
