Russia’s envoy to the United Nations reportedly said Wednesday that the country would veto any U.N. resolution on Syria that it deemed unacceptable.

Reuters reported that Russia would veto any draft resolution calling on President Bashar Al Assad to leave his post unless the document makes clear that there would be no military intervention.

On Tuesday, Western powers and Arab countries at the U.N. sought to overcome Russia's opposition to the measure. Addressing the Security Council, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton tried to allay Moscow's concerns that the resolution could open the door to eventual military intervention in Syria, as took place in Libya last year.
