She also warned of the risk of a regional conflict and civil war flaring from the violence in Syria.

" Russia's refusal to join us in some kind of constructive action is keeping Assad in power, well-armed, able to ignore the demands of his own people, the region and the world," The quoted Clinton, as saying.

Clinton's comments came after Syrian troops disobeyed a UN-brokered ceasefire plan on Tuesday, launching fresh attacks on rebellious areas. (ANI)
