Damascus, Sep 6 (Prensa Latina) Syria condemned some statements by Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, during an Arab foreign ministers’ meeting held in Cairo, and described it as a blatant interference in its internal affairs.
A release from the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates stated that the Egyptian president’s words are an explicit attack to the right of this people, to elect their future away from any external interference.
The text says that Morsi showed, without doubt, he reflects the views of a group that has nothing to do with the reality of the common history that unites Syrian and Egyptian peoples.
The Egyptian president is part of the media instigation that tries to stir up violence in Syria, and therefore there is no different from other governments that support terrorist groups with money, weapons, training and shelter, and becomes a partner in Syrian bloodshed.
The ministry expressed hope that the people from the neighboring nation regain the role Egypt has played in the Arab world, so as to restore the balance currently lost in the joint Arab action.
During the opening session of the 138th regular meeting of foreign ministers of the Arab League held yesterday, Morsi said “it is too late to talk of reform, it is time for change” and urged President Bashar al-Assad to resign and requested international support for Syrian insurgents.
