29 September, 18:57

    (ANSAmed) - NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 29 - Syria supports any international effort against terrorism, said Foreign Minister Walid Al-Muallem in his speech at the UN General Assembly on Monday.

    ''We stand with any international effort aimed at fighting and combating terrorism,'' he said.

    Last week, US-led coalition airstrikes began in Syria against jihadist positions. However, Muallem added, the US policy to provide funds, weapons and training for some rebel groups ''is a recipe for an increase in violence and terrorism''. (ANSAmed).
