Blinken to UN Security Council: ‘shame on us’ if Syria conflict does not end


US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has told the UN Security Council that there will be “shame on us” if the Syria war is not ended.

Addressing the council, Blinken asked how it was possible “that we can’t find it in our hearts the common humanity to actually do something” to end the conflict?

“This is our responsibility” and “shame on us” if we don’t meet it, he said.
