MUNICH - Arab countries and Turkey joined the West on Sunday in criticizing the Russian-Chinese veto of a UN Security Council resolution against Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Moscow and Beijing vetoed the resolution, which would have expressed the Security Council's full support for an Arab League plan that would see Assad cede power to a deputy, withdraw troops from cities and make way for democracy.

"Unfortunately, yesterday in the UN, the Cold War logic continues," Turkey's foreign minister Ahmet Davutoglu told a security conference in Munich.

"Russia and China did not vote based on the existing realities but more a reflexive attitude against the West. The veto power should not be used from this perspective."
