Mr. Muallem said the Syrian government had implemented political reforms and cooperated with initiatives put forward by UN envoys to end the crisis. He called for all parties inside and outside Syria to engage in constructive dialogue. But he said peace efforts had been undermined by external support for what he called the terrorist campaign in his country. He accused the United States, France and regional countries of supplying rebel groups with arms and money. And he condemned calls for the President Bashar al-Assad to step down as a blatant interference in Syria's domestic affairs.

穆阿利姆说,叙利亚政府已经实施了政治改革,并对联合国使者提出的意在结束危机的提议表示合作。他呼吁叙利亚内外各方开展建设性的对话。但他说,和平努力受到本国被他称之为恐怖主义运动的外在作用的削弱,他指责美国、法国和地区国家向叛军提供武器和金钱,他谴责要求阿萨德总统下台的呼声是对叙利亚内政的公然干涉。
