US Opposes UN Action on Gaza that Undermines Ceasefire -Rice

The US will not allow a UN Security Council statement on the Gaza conflict that undermines efforts to reach a ceasefire. 

This is according to US ambassador Susan Rice. 

But after new talks between the 15-nation council, Russia announced that unless a statement calling for hostilities to end is agreed by tomorrow evening, it would press for a full resolution. 

It is a move which the US could veto.
