Clinton told a "Friends of Syria" conference in Istanbul that Assad had promised to implement UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan's peace plan but instead was launching new attacks on Syrian cities and denying delivery of aid.
"Nearly a week has gone by, and we have to conclude that the regime is adding to its long list of broken promises," Clinton said, according to prepared remarks distributed by the US State Department.
