Syrian gov't slams opposition meeting in Paris, tilting towards Geneva one


08:47, January 30, 2013

DAMASCUS, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- The Syrian government slammed on Tuesday an opposition meeting held a day earlier in Paris, but seemed tilting towards another meeting held in Geneva on the same day.

Two meetings of the Syrian opposition groups have been held in two Western capitals with apparent similar titles, but with absolutely dissimilar ways.

The Syrian government has unleashed a vitriolic criticism of the Paris conference but showed a purported support for the Geneva one.

On Tuesday, Syria poked fun at the Paris meeting and said France has hosted the "council of puppets," adding that France has summoned its media and political band to give the participants the new role it has written down for them.

In a statement, Syria's official SANA news agency said Tuesday that France has hosted the meeting "to acquit the (French) regime from its humanitarian and legal accountability for the crimes of the Takfiri terrorism in Syria as it's the basic supporter of it, as well as to mass the European support for its policies and increase the military assistance to the opposition."

It charged that France has tried to disrupt the Geneva meeting of the opposition groups that oppose foreign intervention in Syria.

"The puppies of the West have asked for more weapons to al- Qaeda terrorists in Syria... However, France cannot make its own decision and must have the U.S. green light, something which is difficult to receive now from the White House which is currently negotiating with the Kremlin for the implementation of the Geneva statement," said Sana statement.
