Russia and China blocked the Security Council's resolution regarding ISIS. As we reported earlier, those resolution wanted to establish a UN body in Syria to distribute humanitarian aid, have Syria ratify the Roman Statutes, arm the Kurds and open the turkish border to let said Kurds fight against ISIS. 

It remains to be seen which of those points will prevail in the end, and if the Security Council will come up with a new resolution.
