Arabs condemn Syrian government 'massacres', demand political solution

KUWAIT (Reuters) - Arab leaders meeting in Kuwait on Wednesday condemned killings carried out by the government in Syria's three-year-old civil war and called for a political settlement.

"We condemn in the strongest terms the massacres and the mass killing committed by the Syrian regime's forces against the unarmed people," said Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry undersecretary Khaled al-Jarallah, reading from the final statement issued after the two-day summit.

"We call for a political solution to the Syrian crisis in accordance with the Geneva One declaration," it read.
