Syrian Minister Blasts World Support for Rebels

Begs for refugees to come home


Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem blasted regional and international powers for interfering in Syria by supporting "armed terrorist groups," and he called on hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees to return home from "inhumane conditions" in countries he said were plotting against Damascus.

Speaking to the annual meeting of the General Assembly, Mr. Moallem accused "some well-known countries" of pursing "new colonial policies based on political hypocrisy."
