UNITED NATIONS - Russia and China joined other UN Security Council members on Thursday in expressing disappointment at Damascus' failure to allow UN humanitarian aid chief Valerie Amos to visit Syria and urged that she be allowed in immediately, France said.

The 15 nations on the council also said in a unanimously agreed statement that they "deplore" the rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation in the country, where an 11-month government crackdown on pro-democracy protesters has left over 7,500 civilians dead, according to the United Nations.

France's UN mission announced the agreement via its Twitter account (@franceonu).
