(CNN) — Syria struck a defiant tone Wednesday at talks meant to end to three years of bloodshed, laying a record of atrocities — rape, arson, even the destruction of Syrian culture itself — at the feet of rebels and chiding outsiders for trying to interfere.
“This is a Syrian conflict, and it will remain as such,” Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem told the peace conference.
His comments came after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the path to peace has to involve the world community, and can’t include Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whom he accused of widespread human rights abuses.
“Mr. Kerry,” al-Moallem said, “nobody in the world has the right to get rid of the legitimacy of a president or a constitution or a law or anything in Syria except the Syrian people themselves.”
The State Department later issued a statement saying that, “Instead of laying out a positive vision for the future of Syria that is diverse, inclusive and respectful.”[a statement that might have been written by a 24-year-old intern, who has grown up under the sign of Diversity and Inclusiveness]
