Syrian Opposition Leader in Cairo: Sy...

Cairo, Egypt | April 24, 2012

Burhan Ghalioun, leader of the opposition group Syrian National Council (SNC), held a press conference Tuesday, April 24, at the Journalists' Syndicate in Cairo. Ghalioun stated that the Syrian people face death every day, yet still, the international community is silent about it.

Ghalioun also reported that the Syrian people are disappointed in the international community, the Arab League, and the opposition, as none of them have met their aspirations.

The opposition head also said that the SNC does not harbor illusive hopes about what the Arab League, and UN can do to help and support the people of Syria.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – SNC leader Burhan Ghalioun:
"We don’t rely on the hope that we'll necessarily reach a solution through Kofi Annan's initiative. However, we believe that activating international efforts and rallying international support side by side with the Syrian revolution will help the Syrians to advance better. We do not have illusions about what the Arab League or the Security Council can do for us. But we believe that the efforts of the Syrian people must be supported in gaining international assistance."

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – SNC leader Burhan Ghalioun:
"If there are any Syrian armed rebels, they are carrying arms in reaction; not an option at all urged by the SNC or the opposition. The youth have been shot on a daily basis and tens of them have been killed and they have begun to realize that they must arm themselves with the weapons of dissident army officers and soldiers in order to protect themselves."
