Syrian Ambassador Nidal Kabalan in Ankara said on Wednesday that the transformation process in Syria should be conducted in line with the nation's demands and in a peaceful way. In an interview with the semi-official Anatolia news agency in the Turkish capital, Kabalan said the new government in Syria had taken action to meet the demands of the Syrian people. Kabalan said Tuesday's lifting of the emergency rule in the country, as well as transition to multi-party system and a law on media were some of those demands. The ambassador said Syria needed a reform process, and everybody, including President Bashar al-Asad, supported reforms, however, what was not needed in the country at the moment were violent acts.

Kabalan noted that a new era of reforms had begun for Syria and all segments of the society were excited about the process.

The ambassador also said violence should be stopped in order to ensure the effective implementation of reforms.
