On July 19, Russia and China vetoed a Western resolution on Syria. Invoking UN Charter Chapter VII, it effectively authorized war.

Recriminations followed Thursday's vote. At the State Department's July 19 press briefing , spokesman Patrick Ventrell said:.

"We think (Moscow and Beijing's veto was) deplorable, and certainly we're not pleased with the outcome of the vote."

"Having said that, we're going to remain focused on all elements of our national security strategy in terms of keeping the pressure on the Assad regime (for the) kind of political transition" Washington demands.

Asked about America's next step, he said "Assad is not going to stay in power, and there is going to be a change to a new government."

Pressed on if Washington planned circumventing UN authority, he admitted that "avenues outside of the Security Council" are being considered.
