Government slams US interference in Syria internal affairs

Syria slammed the speech given by US president Barack Obama, saying Friday it "clearly shows US interference in Syria's internal affairs."

In his speech, Obama condemned violence against protesters in Syria. "President (Bashar) al-Assad now has a choice," Obama said. "He can lead that transition or get out of the way, DPA reported.

Syria also said that the speech reaffirmed Washington's staunch support for Israel, the official SANA news agency said.

"The US president's speech on the Middle East had nothing new as far as his country's policies concerning the peace process, the situation in Iraq or security or regional stability are concerned," SANA said.
