US weighing 'next steps' after Syria UN mission suspended
The White House said on today it was consulting international
partners on "next steps" in the Syria crisis after UN observers
suspended operations there in response to violence that has escalated
despite a ceasefire.
"We call again on the Syrian regime to uphold its commitments under the Annan plan, including the full implementation of a ceasefire," White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said in a statement.
"At this critical juncture, we are consulting with our international partners regarding next steps toward a Syrian-led political transition as called for in Security Council resolutions," he said, but provided no specifics.
