Speaking at a joint press-conference with his Chinese counterpart Hu Jintao, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the two nations had pledged closer cooperation and were united in opposing Western intervention against Syria and Iran.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weiman said that the two nations are calling for an end to violence in Syria on both sides and want to start a political dialogue between Assad and the rebels.
The comments are a harsh rebuke to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s comments over the weekend. Clinton demanded that Russia immediately endorse regime change in Syria, saying that it was time to oust Assad.
Russia and China have vetoed several UN efforts to punish Assad for the ongoing unrest, and spearheaded the effort by Kofi Annan to launch a ceasefire. The rebels have declared the ceasefire over as of this weekend, launching a massive offensive.

Clinton can demand whatever and whenever she wants, first of all she is not a syrian nor she is part of the syrian government or have any contact with the reality in Syria and Syrian people, she categorically refuses to see the changes and the doors that are open for a better, prosper and more democratic Syria. She has a bet on the issue that Syrian government and Syrian president must be changed and with her co-better as Saudi Arabian Wahabbis where osama bin laden is from, the Saudis Kingdom Family the feudalists in Saudi Arabia, the UAE Kingdom, the Turkish sectarian government whom are bought by the Saudis and NATO militarism regimes so as Jordanian Kingdom family whom are the servant to the British monarch hand in hand wanting to change a legitimate government of a country.
The entire matter is a plot by the Saudis kings, the English and Jordanian monarchs hand in hand with religious sects trying to divide and conquer what is not theirs nor they have any given rights to do so. If the present US and EU governments are after Tyrants, then they could start with Saudis, UAE the English monarch, they been around for hundred of years, so is the Swedish tyrant regime and so on in Belgium, in Spain and etc, if Hillary Clinton is after democracy, then she should start her demands with Saudis, UAE and Jordanian regimes and all those dictatorial regimes that she a have a relation or building a militaristic relation with, these regimes are not about democracy nor such terms exist or is thought at school in either countries. The truth of the matter is that the majority of the Syrian people backing their government, the future of Syria is about the Syrian people, for the Syrian people and by the Syrian people, so peace needs to start for people to vote and the right to have their say, that is democracy not just demanding and demanding again. Here the matter is the life of people that we are talking about, not a betting moment at a casino, Syria is not a gambling arena and is not located in Las Vegas. If she understand this basics terms in democracy then she wouldn't “bet on regime change” continuing with her demands, otherwise she is working for the true tyrants and doesn’t care about reality nor peoples life or their future in democracy, a democratic system that functioning, a system that is not based on a falsified democracy nor a dictatorial militarism regime.
"…have any contact with the reality in Syria…" I think she's one of those DC reality based types. You know, the only reality she's actually in contact with is Washington DC, which by all appearances exists in its own separate dimension.
“Russia, China United Against Syria Intervention”
Easier said than done. Already there has been western intervention going on as soon as a group of Syrians started demonstrating, but obviously Russia and China were referring to overt military intervention rather than intervention by the west’s armed and paid terrorist groups.
A military attack by the west, meaning the US and its cannon fodder NATO, will start the biggest ever war in the Middle East as there are some people there who would want to really get even with some other people.
Syria would immediately attack Israel, not so much as to get the Golan Heights back but to get the Israelis involved. Then Hezbollah and Hamas would open other fronts against Israel. Iran would come to the help of Syria indirectly by sending arms through Iraq, or even directly if itself attacked.
Arab allies of the US would be of no help but liability. If the war becomes hard to contain, one can imagine the entire Middle East petroleum production facilities going up in flames, a flame million times stronger than the computer virus, sending the western economy to the bottom of the sea for a right smart spell.
A good analysis, Nathan of what could happen. Something to ponder on. We in the west will have to pay the price for this madness too.
GOOD ! Russian Chinese cooperation is long overdue.
If Clinton finds regime change so important for Syria, then let Russia and China take charge of the change this time! They are both on the Security Council and have just as much right and obligation to intervene as do NATO and the US.
The Russians and Chinese are not stupid – especially not since Libya. The line of march is from Syria to Iran and then onto surrounding and fragmenting Russia and especially China. It is only these two countries which stand in the way of US global domination. This grand strategy is clear as can be – and human rights has nothing to do with it except as a way to justify US expansion and domination.
Now if only the US "progressive" community could get clear on this, we would be on our way to stopping it all.
the US "progressive" community???
Forget it John. You're setting your hopes on less than 5%. All you gotta do is to look at their voting behavior.
The interesting thing is how you measure it. In polls, close to 70% of Americans say they want the wars to end and the troops to come home and the defense budget cut. But on election day, only about 3% vote for candidates that would do this.
Why Hilary does not send ultimatum to Putin and Hu. Let us see if she is brave, and how long Putin and Hu will laugh …..
Russia-China power combine — An evil a cut above our Empire
If empires Russia and China would simultaneously bomb a U.S. military base, then use all the economic sanctions they could muster to bankrupt our Empire, our downfall would be quick and sure.
So, pray to your deity, all you who think that the purpose of this world is to prove the good in it, pray that no empire gets as evil as our Empire, for our survival depends upon it.
You need to know what happend to Russia and Chinia in Yugoslavia ,How they both were humilated . Aleksander Solzhenitsyn found Putin and started a new United goverenment in Russia . Putin was charged with returning Russia to her historic christian roots , strengthening Russia militarily and economicialy as fast as possible . He has done that , Russia agreed to sell Chinia some first class fighter planes that cost 65 million for only 25 million each . If Chinia promises not to start copying them and selling them too . Russia also has signed contracts to build 500 of these planes in India during the next three yrs . you must understand Chinia and Russia both fear NATO as much as they did the NAZIs . Putin already warned Germany on what was likely to happend to them . Germany finally conqured Yugoslavia in the last century after the third attack . But Russia is now ready and just as ready to start pulling a few tricks too . Russia may even have to resort to premptive strikes too , If they can't stop NATO any other way . That is what one Russian general just said .
The Only States that defend the Sovereignty of Nations and are against Interventions, Occupation and Invasions today are Russia and China, not the Free World as the US and its alleys proclaim themselves to be.
What the world really needs is regime change in America. And the American people could deliver that this fall if they wanted too. Vote for someone other than Obama and Romney, and kick all the Democrats and Republicans out of the Congress.
The two big guys spoke. Now the ball is on the Emperor's side.
