Syria - Defections (Q&A - Excerpt from the daily press briefing - June 25, 2012)

Q : A Syrian general defected to Turkey on Sunday night. Do you have any comment?

A : This latest defection shows that a growing number of members of the Syrian security forces and army are refusing to participate in the repression of the Syrian people.

It is a courageous choice.

We reiterate our call to the Syrian security forces to do their duty to protect the people and not to carry out this bloody crackdown by carrying out the criminal orders of the Assad regime.
