ISTANBUL — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says President Bashar Assad is unlikely to adhere to a U.N.-sponsored peace plan to end a year of bloodshed in Syria.
The U.S. is ratcheting up pressure against Assad but isn't supporting arming rebels or military intervention.
Clinton says a week of fighting has passed since Assad'sklapper regime agreed to U.N. mediator Kofi Annan's six-point plan, which included a ceasefire.
She says, "We have to conclude that the regime is adding to its long list of broken promises."
Clinton was speaking Sunday at a 60-nation conference in Turkey. The meeting seeks to isolate Assad's government and bolster the Syrian opposition.
Clinton says Syrians will continue defending themselves until Assad halts the violence.
She announced $12 million in additional U.S. aid to Syria's people.
