Syria condemns 'irresponsible' Egypt move to cut ties

The Syrian government on Sunday condemned Egypt's decision to cut ties with Damascus and back the armed uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, calling it an "irresponsible" move.

"The Syrian Arab Republic condemns this irresponsible position," an unnamed Syrian official told state news agency SANA, accusing Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi of involvement in a "conspiracy... against Syria."
