The Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem has condemned plans by the US Secretary of State John Kerry to give the opposition more than $60 million in aid. The minister spoke at a press conference in Tehran, Iran where he is visiting the regime's supporters.
Ending the violence in Syria should begin with stopping aid resources for rebels and by increasing pressure on Qatar and Turkey and others who support, arm and provide funds to armed terrorist groups, terrorists who are spilling the blood of Syrians and demolishing the financial infrastructure of Syria.
