WASHINGTON - The United States said on Friday that amid ongoing opposition from Russia, it was not optimistic the UN Security Council could agree on a new resolution urging an end to the Syrian government's brutal crackdown on demonstrators.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said that negotiations between the five permanent Security Council members and Morocco - the sole Arab state on the 15-nation council - aimed at agreeing on the language for the US-drafted resolution had made no progress.

"We are, frankly, not over optimistic that an agreed text will be reached in the future," Nuland told reporters.
