Rice: don't expect any breakthroughs

January 30, 2013 02:02

UNITED NATIONS - US Ambassador Susan Rice said "there is no obvious way forward" after UN-Arab League envoy for Syria Lakdar Brahimi briefed the five permanent members of the Security Council.

"I don't have any promises of any big breakthroughs," she said in a press gaggle. "The same issues that have stymied the Council to date remain unresolved."

Brahimi gave the Council a sobering assessment of the situation on the ground, which he said was a live display of a country falling apart.

Rice, reiterating US support for Brahimi's efforts, says she expects the UN logjam to continue though she is looking for agreement on a path forward with her counterparts.
