Syria has strongly condemned remarks made by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi as a blatant interference in the country's internal affairs, which only fuels the violence in the country. Morsi's remarks on Syria are an outright encroachment on the Syrian people's right to choose their future without foreign intervention, Xinhua quoted Syrian Foreign Ministry as saying in a statement on Thursday. At an Arab League ministerial meeting in Cairo on Wednesday, Morsi said to speak of reform in Syria was a waste of time. "What Morsi has said is part of the media instigation that aims at aggravating the violence in Syria and thus," the Syrian Foreign Ministry statement said.
There is no difference between him and "other governments that are supporting the armed terrorist groups with money, arms and training, which have made them partners in shedding the Syrian blood,” it added.Since March 2011, Syria has been experiencing a deadly unrest, which President Bashar al-Assad’s government says is being orchestrated from outside the country. Damascus blames the violence on outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists, accusing Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey of arming insurgents fighting the government. MRS/JR
