Syrian Regime Slams "Civil War" Characterization By New UN Envoy

Syria dismissed comments by new international peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi on Monday, who described the country's 17-month conflict as "civil war" in an interview with FRANCE 24 the previous day.

"To speak of civil war in Syria contradicts reality and is found only in the head of conspirators," the Syrian foreign ministry said in a statement published by the official SANA news agency.
