MEXICO CITY - The European Union's foreign policy chief added her voice on Thursday to international calls for Russia to support a United Nations resolution demanding Syrian President Bashar Assad halt a bloody crackdown on months of unrest.

Catherine Ashton said she was disappointed by the failure of a UN Security Council resolution calling on Assad to pull his troops back after it was vetoed by China and Russia.

"My message to my Russian colleagues is that they too need to recognize the reality of the situation on the ground and we can't go on simply allowing this to happen," Ashton said during a visit to Mexico.

"The Security Council is the place where these things need to be taken forward."
