'US involved in bloody events in Syria'

'Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem on Wednesday accused Washington of direct involvement in the ”bloody events in Syria” and asked the international community to “condemn the involvement and to do what is necessary to end it.”

He also said that Damascus considers the US call as an “encouragement to the armed groups to continue their criminal acts against the Syrian people and state”. The top Syrian diplomat has also accused Washington of attempting to block efforts to restore peace to Syria.

Al-Muallem made the statement in letters sent to a number of world leaders and international organizations including the UN and the Arab League.’
