Portugal's Ambassador to the UN Jose Filipe Moraes Cabral (L),  Russia's Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin (C) and South Africa's Ambassador to the UN Baso Sangqu during a vote on a resolution on Syria in the United Nations Security Council during a meeting on Syria February 4, 2012 at the United Nations in New York.   Russia and China on Saturday vetoed a UN Security Council resolution condemning the Syrian government's deadly crackdown on protests for the second time. Thirteen countries voted for the resolution proposed by European and Arab nations to give strong backing to the Arab League's plan to end the crackdown. But Russia and China made a repeat of their rare double veto carried out on October 5 on an earlier condemnation. AFP PHOTO / DON EMMERT (Photo credit should read DON EMMERT/AFP/Getty Images)
