US ambassador hopes Russia will cooperate on Syria

GENEVA - US Ambassador to the UN Human Rights Council Eileen Chamberlain Donahoe said on Friday she hoped Russia and the United States were close to agreeing to work together to stem the violence in Syria.
"I believe (US) Secretary (Hillary) Clinton is meeting their foreign minister this weekend. And our hope is that they are on the cusp of joining with us to use the leverage we have together to make sure that this conflict does not spiral out of control," she told reporters outside the council.
