WEST POINT: President Barack Obama said Wednesday his country would step up efforts to support Syria's neighbors including Lebanon.

During a speech at West Point, Obama defended his decision to keep the U.S. military out of the Syrian conflict but said he would seek to increase support for the Syrian opposition, as well as neighboring countries including Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq that have faced an influx of refugees and fear the spread of terrorism.
